Both teams in the Week 5 “Monday Night Football” matchup will be looking to turn things around.
The Saints (2-2) have looked sharp at times and flat in others. A lot of that is due to the play of veteran quarterback Drew Brees, who seems to be losing a step in the 15th season of his Hall-of-Fame career. Through four games, he has completed an impressive 71.3 percent of his passes for 1,006 yards (251.5 yards per game), eight touchdowns and two interceptions; that’s not a bad line at all, but it’s a noticeable dip from the numbers he has produced in past years.
The Chargers (1-3) have looked electric at times with rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. Herbert has thrown for 931 yards in his first three starts, good for second among rookies in NFL history (behind only Cam Newton’s 1,012 passing yards in 2011). The rookie quarterback has played a huge role in keeping games close, but the Chargers just haven’t been able to close out games. All three losses were one-score games, so don’t be surprised if this one winds up being another close affair.
