Two marquee games turned far more on the efforts of the "undercards" than the antagonists, especially the brilliance of one defensive coordinator. The hype story was revenge, but the real tale told was of incomprehensible noise when it came to that receiver from Dallas. The Chargers overcame last week's loss to send the Super Bowl champs into a deeper hole, and Albert Haynesworth may have a rival in the "Cheap Shot" department.
