On Monday Night Football, the New Orleans Saints rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 30-27 in overtime.  Even though the Chargers lost, rookie Justin Herbert had an impressive debut at quarterback throwing four touchdowns in his first game as a starter. He is the first rookie quarterback to throw four touchdowns on Monday Night Football.

Due to COVID-19 scheduling issues, the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans will play tonight (Tuesday). This will be a battle of two unbeaten teams.
