Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Chargers’ first primetime game day of the 2020 season!

With the postponement of the Broncos-Patriots game until later in this season, the Bolts are back to being the lone game this evening and all the attention will now be placed back into Monday Night Football.

So I wanted to get everyone’s thoughts on which potential player(s) will have themselves a big performance underneath the lights. Will Justin Herbert throw for another 300 yards and several touchdowns to keep this game close? Will a member of the secondary record a turnover for the second-straight game? Will either Joshua Kelley or Justin Jackson take control of the backfield with Austin Ekeler sidelined indefinitely?

I think there are plenty of players to consider for this, but I’m going to go with Desmond King.

I thought King looked invigorated against the Bucs when he came out of the locker room with his hair on fire to begin the game. He was constantly around the ball throughout the first half and it was almost as if we were back in 2018 when he played his way to a First-Team All-Pro selection. With Chris Harris out a few more weeks, I think King continues his attempt to prove to the coaching staff that he’s worth a second contract when that time comes.

Your turn. Who do you have as a player primed for a big performance on MNF?

And here are today’s links.
