Andy Dalton Postgame Press Conference vs Ravens

(on whether he thought they were going to win on a late drive like they have before) “It’s no question. I thought we were going to go down and score, just we like we have in other games this season. We were close. We didn’t get it done, but everyone had a feeling we were going to get a late score.”

(on how much the team misses WR A.J. Green) “That’s a huge part of it. With A.J. [Green] out there, I’m sure the pass coverage would have been different. He has made so many big catches over the years. If we had him, we would have given ourselves a better shot.”

(on the Ravens’ defensive focus) “They did a really good job of shutting down the run game. That’s the way they’ve always played. They focused on stopping the run, and we couldn’t get anything going. I’m getting used to all of the new receivers. That’s just football. Guys get hurt, and new guys take their places. You just have to trust everyone to make a play. John [Ross] made a great catch in the end zone on that one-on-one play. I saw him do that in a lot of his college tapes, and it was great to see him do that today.”

(on HC Marvin Lewis’s comment that “this is now a race”) “We’re 5-5, and they’re 5-5; it’s all about winning the next game for us. We have to understand that every game is important, and we’re going to need every win. It seems like every season is like this.”

(on the Bengals’ trouble getting into rhythm on offense) “It seemed like we would miss by a couple of inches when catching a ball or finishing a run. We weren’t able to get any momentum in the first half. The big pass play to ‘TB’ [WR Tyler Boyd] was a big play; it got us our first touchdown.”
