DEFENSIVE GAME BALL
Sean Lee
Honorable Mention: None

Lee was responsible for the Cowboys lone bright spot, returning an intercepion for a tocuhdown which amazingly also was the final time Dallas scored in the game.  Lee tallied 18 tackles, 15 of which were solo along with a tackle for a loss.  He literally was all over the field, attacking plays in the backfield, defending passes and covering an assortment of Chargers skill players all over the field.  Lee was the one player on the defense who seemed to be capable of playing to a level expected of a pro in this league.

There is no one else worthy of honorable mention on the defensive side of the ball.  Honestly, this was one of the most disappointing efforts I can recall in quite a long time.  To only register one sack facing a depleted and poor offensive line is inexcusable.  What is worse than that, however, is to allow the opposing quarterback to complete 83% of his passes for over 400 yards.  The defense was incapable of producing any kind of stop the entire second half which, once again, spelled doom for Dallas.
