Yet another great Sunday Night Football game. Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers must be drooling over this matchup. The once mighty New Orleans Saints are sitting at (0-4) and show no signs of improving. The coachless New Orleans Saints seem to already be already looking towards next year’s NFL Draft, not the post season.
Quarterbacks are averaging 250+ passing yards against the Saints this year. That stat includes Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel. You can expect Phillip Rivers to be this week’s fantasy football stud.
Adding to New Orleans frustrations is an injury plagued team going against a relatively health San Diego Chargers team. DB Roman Harper is questionable with a hip injury joining him on the list is DL Brodrick Bunkley: Questionable (illness), WR Lance Moore: Questionable (hamstring), LB Jonathan Casillas: Questionable (neck), RB Travaris Cadet: Questionable (shoulder), DE Turk McBride: Questionable (ankle) and LB David Hawthorne: Questionable (hamstring).
Where I see this game getting interesting is the reaction of the Saints players as the San Diego Chargers and Phillip Rivers run up the score and their season slips away in early October. The referees will be busy tonight as the New Orleans Saints cling to survival. Trash talk and cheap shots should be the theme of the evening.
Vegas odds makers have the spread at New Orleans -4 with the Over/Under at 54. Some see this as a trap game for the Charger and are calling New Orleans the best (0-4) team in the league. I see this as a blowout are the Saints season slips away. You can watch the San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints Sunday Night Football week 4 match-up live and for free at thefirstrow.
