A popular fantasy sleeper for the 2012 NFL season, Vincent Brown, may have had his season end before it even started as Brown broke his ankle in last week’s preseason game.

Once the starters were out of the game, the San Diego Chargers found a pulse and beat the Dallas Cowboys. Shareece Wright's electrifying 73-yard interception return set up Jackie Battle's go-ahead, 2-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, and backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst threw two touchdown passes in the Chargers' 28-20 win on Saturday night.
