Bruce Carter and the Dallas Cowboys simply couldn't stop Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers.
That will be their freshest memory when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos visit on Sunday.
Carter was beaten for two touchdowns and another big play in the 30-21 loss to San Diego. He says there are "no easy games" and the it's time to "just go back to work."
Dallas is near the bottom in pass defense and likely to be tied for the league lead with 10 TD passes allowed with Manning set for his first visit to the Cowboys' $1.2 billion stadium after throwing for 16 scores in the first four games.
