The Bengals played the Chargers today in their first game since the death of wide receiver Chris Henry. Fellow Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco has publicly reacted to Henry’s passing several times this week, first in an emotional interview and later on Ustream.
Today Ochocinco, who is known for his elaborate taunts and touchdown celebrations, hauled in a 49-yard TD early in the second quarter to give his team the lead. When the play ended, Ochocinco dropped to a knee and looked at the sky. The catch was not enough to lift the Bengals to victory, however, as they lost to the Chargers on a late field goal.
