The New Orleans Saints face the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday. Here’s all of the info that you need to watch.
The New Orleans Saints will travel West to take on the San Diego Chargers this week in a Week 4 battle that figures to be an offensive shootout. The 0-3 Saints have one of the worst defenses in the entire NFL, but Drew Brees is still more than capable of lighting up the scoreboard.

The 1-2 Chargers are in a similar situation. San Diego’s defense is not as bad as the Saints’ unit, but they leave plenty to be desired on that side of the ball. Also, despite major injuries to key players, Philip Rivers leads an explosive offensive attack for San Diego.
This should be a fun and interesting matchup that will be kind to fantasy football owners.
Mark Ingram paces the rushing attack for the Saints. Ingram should be able to have a nice week against a Chargers’ rush defense that cannot seem to stop anybody. Also, Brandin Cooks figures to play a major role, as a deep threat receiver on the outside.
If the Saints can get fellow wide receiver Willie Snead back from a toe injury this week, their offense should be able to put up a ton of points against the Chargers’ defense.
When the Chargers have the ball, running back Melvin Gordon and wide receiver Travis Benjamin figure to be the focus of the game plan. Gordon is having a strong sophomore campaign and should be able to put up major production against the Saints’ defense.
Also, Rivers should be looking for Benjamin early and often in this one against the leaky New Orleans’ secondary.
