It's been debated whether or not Carson Palmer's final interception was a result of a bad throw, or Terrell Owens not putting forth the effort to haul in a pass within traffic. Palmer took the blame on all three, including the last one. "All three, they're plays that are completely my fault, plays I can't make," Palmer said. "It was miscommunication on all of them, and I need to do a better job of making sure I put the ball in our guys' hands."
Terrell Owens took the blame anyway.
"That's commendable for Carson to come in and shoulder the load, but it's not all his fault. This is something that we have to share together. He's making his read based on how we practice. And again, I messed it up. I messed it up on the interception, and I didn't get the ball on the long ball. So blame it on me. I'll take the blame. I know I'm working hard and trying to do the best I can do. That's about all I can do."
Furthermore, Owens apologized to Bengals fans, even saying that he lost the game for the team.
I wanna apologize 2 the fans! I lost the game 4 us, gotta make more plays, gotta make sure I check n 2 eat 'just ok' food nite b4 the game.
