The Bengals locker room was somber but business-like following Sunday's 38-13 loss to New England.
After the game, head coach Marvin Lewis brushed off questions about Chris Henry's deactivation.
"I can only dress 45 guys and Chris was inactive today," he said.
When asked if Henry was one of his best 45 players, Lewis said, "Today he wasn't".
On Sunday, the best players were wearing red, blue and silver.
"We didn't play good enough in any area to win this football game," Lewis said. "If you don't do the fundamentals, tackling and blocking, you're not going to beat a good team. Let's go back to work. We have a lot of football left to play."
Next up is the bye week, and an opportunity for the 3-1 Bengals to lick their wounds and regroup.
