What Did the Bengals Say After Losing to the Bolts?


On Keenan Allen…

"I thought (our) corners had a tough duty. 13 is a hell of a player. He did a nice job except for the over-route there later in the game. We did a good job trying to keep hands on him all day long and make it hard. We made them have to go to the second option." – Head Coach Marvin Lewis

On Chargers offense…

"They didn't invent new plays. They only had 11 guys out there, and we have to do a better job of understanding it and getting our job done. We have to go in and get ready for the pace of the game." – Head Coach Marvin Lewis

On Darius Philon's sack…

"It was a pretty simple look. They didn't surprise us with anything on defense all day. We didn't convert and we didn't execute. We just have to find a way to do that. The first two options that I had I didn't think it was clean enough to let it rip, so I just tried to create because you have to find a way to get in on two-point conversions. I don't know who got me, but we've just got to make that play." – QB Jeff Driskel

On the penalty that set up Michael Badgley's 59-yard field goal…

"It's frustrating. I'm not sure what the score was at halftime, but we had a lot of momentum. The offense was getting the ball back coming out so jumping offsides and giving them free points was a huge part of the game. We lost by five points so it's a different ball game. You have to continue to have discipline and take this thing by winning." – S Jessie Bates

On the game…

"Obviously, today, the margin of error and the opportunity – they make the big pass there in the start of the fourth quarter that gives them the field goal and makes a difference in the game there. We have two penalties – the one on the goal line and later on, the one in the one minute that gives them the opportunity for the field goal – disappointing. We've got to do better." – Head Coach Marvin Lewis

"We just didn't make the plays. We made some plays, but not the ones we needed. We have to find a way to convert those. There are no moral victories in this league. We have to fight, scratch and claw to get a win." – QB Jeff Driskel
