Saints vs. Chargers: Game Time, TV Schedule, and Matchup History

The Saints have won two of their past three games against the Chargers.

Jokingly known as "The Farm Team," the 3-1 Chargers travel to the suddenly tame Mercedes-Benz Superdome to take on the seemingly hapless 0-4 Saints.

Coming off a close loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Aaron Kromer and company look to right the ship this week, with help from ex-Chargers Drew Brees and Darren Sproles. While neither player has quite performed to the standards they set last year, both Brees and Sproles have the ability to take a game over with their incredible talent.

Sproles, who set the NFL record for all-purpose yards in a season last year, will try to find his trademark explosiveness against a tough San Diego defense, while all-world quarterback Drew Brees will desperately hope that he doesn't have to run for his life again this week.
