The Chargers are taking the field tonight against the Saints in their first primetime matchup of the season for Monday Night Football.

Justin Herbert is facing another veteran quarterback, with this one being 19 years his elder. Drew Brees isn’t the same passer he once was, but he is still plenty capable of getting the job done. Running back Alvin Kamara is a one-man offense who can do it all and the Chargers defense will have their hands full with him all night.

Star receiver Michael Thomas is also out this week, but not due to an injury. He punched a teammate on Saturday during practice and he’ll be facing some disciplinary actions for it.

Grab your favorite drinks, snacks, and good luck charms because it’s about to go down.

Enjoy the game, and Go Chargers! Bolt up, baby!
