Chargers' Rookie QB Justin Herbert blindsided the Saints at home, with three first-half touchdown passes. Herbert was named starting QB for the Chargers last week, after stepping in for injured Tyrod Taylor in Week 2.
Old friend Keenan Singleton, chimed in with a tweet about how Justin's last name would be pronounced down in the Big Easy, triggering our memory of this classic George Costanza exchange, involving another Bayou QB.
You know I love the home dogs, so this week, I picked three. Hopefully they'll be the ones barking this weekend, so I won't have to on Monday Night.
Dolphins and Bills always tend to play close games, Josh Allen pulls this one out late, but the underdog Dolphins keep it close and cover.
Chargers open at the new SoFi Stadium in Carson, getting eight and a half. With no fans, they avoid the media narrative about their sparse LA support. They'll do just enough to stay within a TD of the Chiefs, who'll have an extended layoff.
It's Monday night, and it's the Raiders plus six, in the new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Look for a track meet against Drew Brees and the Saints. Fully expect the Silver & Black to cover, and wouldn't be surprised if they pulled this one out.
