How to watch Live Stream, Where to Play, Broadcast, Schedule
Los Angeles Chargers will take on the New Orleans Saints for a Monday Night Football matchup in Week 5. The game is set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome.
The Chargers are have lost three straight since topping the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. The Saints were able to pull off a comeback in against the Detroit Lions in Week 4 after falling short to the Green Bay Packers the previous week.
Justin Herbert was considered to be a temporary starter when Tyrod Taylor was sidelined by a punctured lung in Week 2, but Anthony Lynn has made him the starter moving forward. He’s been impressive throwing the football and has been one of the most productive rookie passers the NFL has ever seen through four weeks. His arm will be important in this matchup as Austin Ekeler is out with a hamstring injury and New Orleans is banged up in the secondary.
The Saints haven’t looked nearly as explosive as usual this season. Michael Thomas hasn’t played since Week 1 because of a high ankle sprain, so Alvin Kamara has had to carry the offense. While Thomas is working toward returning in Week 5, but Jared Cook is battling a groin injury and might not be able to take the field. Los Angeles has a ton of talent on defense and could make things tough for the home team.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on WatchESPN, which required a cable log-in. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream Monday Night Football this week.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The Saints (-245) are 8-point favorites on DraftKings Sportsbook have a 1-1 record at home. The Chargers (+290) have only played in one-score games this season, and their ability to keep games close should give them a decent shot at covering the spread. Los Angeles has a real shot at an upset while Janoris Jenkins is out with a hamstring injury and Marshon Lattimore is hobbled by a hamstring injury of his own.
