Bruce Carter picked a bad week to have a bunch of bad plays show up on film.

The Dallas Cowboys linebacker is about to face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Or maybe that's the good news. Maybe Carter won't be singled out. Carter says Manning "may target everybody" when he makes his first visit to the Cowboys' $1.2 billion stadium Sunday.

The Dallas defense is coming off its worst game in a loss at San Diego. Now they get Manning, who has a record 16 touchdowns through four games without an interception. Carter was benched against the Chargers and might not start against the Broncos.
