Chad Johnson takes blame for interception that turned Patriots game

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Chad Johnson is taking the blame.
After looking at video of the interception that scuttled the Cincinnati Bengals' comeback Monday night, the Pro Bowl receiver decided it was his fault after all.
Johnson and quarterback Carson Palmer exchanged words on the field after Asante Samuel's interception near the goal line snuffed out a drive late in the first half of New England's 34-13 win. Johnson kept at it on the bench, and walked to the locker room at halftime still sniping at Palmer.
The dispute became the defining moment of a loss that dropped the Bengals to 1-3. After the game, coach Marvin Lewis screamed at his players for being selfish, though he didn't single out anyone.
So, who was to blame?
"We're both emotional people," Johnson said Wednesday. "The situation that happened out there was my fault."
