    SAN DIEGO -- As the names were rattled off, Brandon Carr's eyes got bigger and bigger. So did his smile.

    DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer, Jay Ratliff and Jason Hatcher did not play Saturday against the San Diego Chargers and only Ware among them has seen some preseason work so far, but Carr has a sense about the Dallas Cowboys' defense once those guys get back to work.

    "Hopefully it's lights out," Carr said.

    On Saturday, Carr had two first-half interceptions of Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers as the No. 1 defense ran its shutout streak to 29 plays in two preseason games. Overall in the preseason, the Cowboys have intercepted four passes in two games and recovered one fumble.

    "I'm sitting with Jason Witten and he says, 'You know, if we get a couple like that during the regular season, that's a difference maker and haves us sitting there in the playoffs,'" owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "I was really pleased there."

    Carr's night was special regardless of the preseason setting.
