Dexter McCluster's punt return for TD is best of Week 4

Dexter McCluster of the Kansas City Chiefs worked hard for his money during Sunday's win over the New York Giants. The Chiefs punt returner took one back 89 yards for a touchdown, which won the honor of Week 4 "Performance Moment of the Week," presented by Bridgestone.

McCluster's touchdown couldn't have come at a better time for the Chiefs. Up 10-7 in the third quarter, Giants coach Tom Coughlin had a very tough decision to make: Go for it on fourth-and-1 from his own 30-yard line or punt it away.

Coughlin elected to punt, which ended up being a highly criticized decision after the game, specifically by Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. McCluster went on to elude six New York defenders on his way into the end zone.

The touchdown spurred Kansas City to score 21 unanswered points, leading the Chiefs to a 31-7 win and a 4-0 record.
