    (3-1) -- (0-4)

    Sunday, October 7 | Mercedes-Benz Superdome | 5:20 PM

    -Saints are favored by 4
    -Chargers are 1-1 (0-0 in NO) against the Saints in the past eleven years, 7-3 all time (4-0 in NO).
    -In their last meeting, a sloppy game by both the Chargers, and the English weather led to a 37-32 win by the Saints in Wembley Stadium.

    Game Notes

    -This is the Chargers first trip to New Orleans since 1997.
    -The Saints have not lost a game by more than one score, and despite having the league's worst defense, still have one of the best offense's around. This game is the definition of a trap game. If the Chargers defense can perform like it did in KC, this game is winnable.

    bleh....no idea, the line scares me. The line looks good to bet on SD but Im checkin others first...Saints are very dangerous, especially an 0-4 Saints team at home.
  5. SDSUBaseball Go Blues!

    Not a good one to bet on. The Chargers rarely are.
  6. Unless you believe the Saints are tossing up both middle fingers to the NFL for the banning of the coaches etc this season, and are pulling a 2011 Colts and going for that 1st overall draft pick.....
  7. SDSUBaseball Go Blues!

    Nice conspiracy theory. The Saints just suck though. They are lost without their coach and it took a lot of luck last year for them to be good. One of the most overrated teams in football the last 5 years.
  8. Agreed it is a nice one..... :D
  9. SDSUBaseball Go Blues!

    The Saints fans love their conspiracy theories. People in NO thing the world is against them.
