After a long week off with a Week 5 bye, the LA Chargers are back in action on Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys. It is the first primetime game of the season for the Bolts while the Cowboys are coming off a primetime blowout loss against the San Francisco 49ers.

This is a big game for both teams as it could be a turning point in either season. This could be a catalyst that launches the Chargers' season and it can also be another ugly loss for a Dallas team that cannot really afford it.

There are going to be a lot of eyes on this one, not just between Chargers and Cowboys fans. This is destined to be an extremely fun matchup between two entertaining teams in what could be the most entertaining Monday Night Football game of the year.
