Michael Thomas isn’t playing tonight because he punched his teammate. That’s very funny, but it would be even funnier if the Saints lost. The Chargers will hopefully help that particular dream come true.
The Chargers have been at least entertaining this year, a game squad with Justin Herbert slinging the ball all over the place. The Saints, meanwhile, have wins but have been less entertaining and capable than in years past, thanks in part to a collapsing defense and in larger part due to Drew Brees finally hitting the upper age limit his arm will allow. That gives me some hope that the Chargers can win this one, because there’s not much else for Falcons fans to do during Monday Night Football than root for a hated rival to lose.
Watch the game here if you’re up for it!
