It's time for the NFL Sunday capstone game, this week featuring the San Diego Chargers visiting the New Orleans Saints. The Chargers are currently 3-1 and in control of the AFC West, while the NFC South basement is held by the Saints and their 0-4 record.

The Saints could be buoyed by the presence of their Head Coach, Interim Head Coach, and General Manager in the Super Dome today, even if Sean Payton, Joe Vitt, and Mickey Loomis cannot have any contact with the team. Saints quarterback Drew Brees sent an email to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this week requesting the special, one-time, exception to the suspensions allowing all three men to attend the game in which Brees, with one touchdown pass, will surpass Johnny Unitas for consecutive games with a touchdown pass.The Commissioner granted the exception, allowing the three men to watch the game from a suit, with no contact with any member of the team except Brees, who will be allowed to visit them after the game.

The Chargers, meanwhile, have only lost to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons this season, yet are 4 point underdogs to the Saints tonight.

As usual, keep pictures to a minimum, and appropriate, in a live thread. I will remove pictures that are inappropriate and they can lead to warnings and/or bannings.

Do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).

Enjoy the game!
