Question #2: Which primetime game most catches your interest?

Devon Auriemma:

“Monday Night Football in Week 5 against the Saints. Although it is a very tough game, I’m excited to watch Drew Brees take on his former team for what could be the final time. Michael Thomas is also an incredible player, so seeing what the LA Chargers’ new defensive scheme can do to limit him will be interesting.”

Steven Haglund:

“The primetime situation is interesting. I’m very surprised the Chargers didn’t get a single home prime-time matchup. The Rams got three and the Raiders got four, so that was pretty annoying honestly. Hopefully the Week 16 matchup against Denver gets flexed because it would be a real shame to not see this team get the chance to play on the national stage in the inaugural season in SoFi stadium.

Obviously, the answer here is the Saints as I mentioned earlier. It’s a great opportunity, but I think they have a better chance of winning on TNF against the Raiders.”

Gary Johnson:

“That is easily the MNF game against the Saints. The Superdome will be rocking, per usual. I find it fitting that arguably their hardest game is in primetime against Brees.”

Alexander Insdorf:

“While most will answer with the game against the Saints, I’ll go with the Thursday night game vs. the Raiders. It’s the first time the Chargers will play in the new Las Vegas (yep, still weird) stadium.

That game also kicks off the final three-game stretch vs. all AFC West opponents, with the Raiders, Broncos, and Chiefs ending the regular season for the Chargers. While the Saints game will be exciting, the late-season contest against the Raiders will most likely have bigger playoff implications.”

Jason Reed:

“I am obviously double-dipping here. It is the Saints game, although, if I cannot go to New Orleans I would love to go to Las Vegas for that Thursday night game if it is safe by then to do so.”
