Los Angeles Chargers vs New Orleans Saints Preview
The Saints find themselves on the primetime stage for another week in what is shaping up to be a bit of a line in the sand game against the Chargers.
Now at 2-2, the Saints find themselves with some work to do behind the division leading Bucs as they attempt to get their season back on track amidst COVID-19 concerns.
New Orleans did just enough last week to survive a scare against the Lions, but it appears they’ll have their hands full again with the frisky Chargers in town.
Despite their 1-3 record, Los Angeles has proven themselves a tough out this season ever since Justin Herbert stepped in under centre to replace Tyrod Taylor.
The rookie quarterback showed plenty of poise last week in the 38-31 loss to Tom Brady and the Bucs, and he might just put up some big numbers again on Tuesday.
The Saints have allowed the fourth-most passing touchdowns this year, while they’ve also allowed teams to score a touchdown on 82% of their possessions in the red zone – the highest percentage in the league.
Los Angeles ranks middle of the pack in red zone touchdowns offensively this year, so there’s a bit to like about the Chargers at least keeping this game close.
