“Monday Night Football” is underway, and it has been a surprising matchup thus far. Despite being touchdown-underdogs to Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, it’s Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers who have dominated in Week 5. Herbert threw three touchdowns in the first half while Brees threw an interception that almost turned into a pick-six. Brees did lead an eight-play, 51-yard touchdown at the end of the first half to cut the deficit to 10 points, but there is still work to be done if the Saints want to mount a comeback tonight.
Can Herbert help the Chargers pull off a prime-time upset and vault L.A. back into the AFC West race? Or are the Saints too talented to drop this one at home? Keep it locked right here for live updates and analysis throughout the matchup:
