Week 4 Grades: Broncos, Cowboys continue poor defensive showings
But how can this be you ask? They have millions invested in corners

Moss wore down Newman with double moves, basic moves; short passes long passes and basically anything he wanted. Moss is the number one man in the 'Skins pass offense, and when you lose a game and allow the opponent's best player to beat you, you deserve to lose. At what point in the game where they going to press Moss and double cover him and force someone else to defeat them?

The Broncos might have posted another 400-plus yard offensive game, but the Chiefs forced four turnovers and played very well in the red area, allowing the Broncos to score only once in four trips. And what stood out most in this game was the Chiefs' ability to score in the final minute of the game, running the ball when they had to run and never allowing the Broncos offense to get back on the field.
