There are some games where fans just sit back and watch the points fill up the scoreboard. Sunday afternoon looks to be one of those times as the New Orleans Saints hit the road to face the San Diego Chargers in a game between two of the most high-scoring teams in the whole NFL. The Saints are still looking for the first win of the season while the Chargers are trying to get back to the .500 mark with a win. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Saints lost 45-32 to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night but have scored at least 30 points in two of their three games this season. Drew Brees has passed for 1,062 yards already this season with eight touchdowns and an interception. Willie Snead has 14 catches for 226 yards and two touchdowns and missed last week’s game while Brandin Cooks has 15 catches for 224 yards and two scores. Mark Ingram has been decent on the ground with 165 rushing yards but needs to help Brees out with bigger games. The defense has been very bad so far and must find a way to slow Philip Rivers down.
The Chargers lost 26-22 to the Indianapolis Colts and come home looking to remain undefeated there. Rivers has 793 passing yards and five touchdowns without throwing a single interception. Travis Benjamin leads the team with 17 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Melvin Gordon has 194 rushing yards and four touchdowns while looking much better in his second season in the NFL. Can San Diego slow down Brees though who is on pace for 5,664 passing yards this season? That is the biggest story in this game and whether or not San Diego can pull down another home victory.
