Both teams are turning things around in the Week 5 “Monday Night Football” match.
Saints (2-2) are sometimes sharp and flat in others. That’s a lot due to the play of senior quarterback Drew Breeze, who will miss even one step in the 15th season of his Hall of Fame career. With four games, he has completed 1,006 yards (251.5 yards per game), 71.3 percent of his pass for eight touchdowns and two interceptions; This is not a bad line, but it is noticeable from the numbers he has created over the years.
The Chargers (1-3) sometimes saw power with rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. Herbert threw 931 yards in his first three starts, second only to NFL history (behind Cam Newton’s 1,012 passing yards in 2011). Rookie quarterback played a big role in keeping the games close, but the chargers were unable to close the games. All three losses were one-score games, so don’t be surprised if this is another close affair.
