Let me start off by saying this: I have always been a HUGE Brett Favre fan, he is one of my all time favorite players so I am excited to see him in san diego again. That being said, I hope he has the worst game of his career against my beloved Chargers. This is my preiview for this monday night matchup

The afc east is confusing, first the Jets beat the Dolphins, then the Patriots beat the jets, and this week the dolphins beat the patriots, whats a man to think! I personally think that the jets are not that great of a team due to the fact that they often have trouble establishing a run game. Thomas Jones has had a mostly disappointing career in new york, this leaves it all on the shoulders of favre, which can be very good or very bad for the jets. The chargers defense needs to attack favre all game and force him to make mistakes, if they can do that, the bolts should very easily win this game. If not, then it could be another last minute upset.

So im guessing that after last week at least half of you rushed to your computers trying to add Darren Sproles to your fantasy team only to find you were too late. Sproles had an amazing game last week and showed hes a home run threat on literally every play, if LaDainian Tomlinson has limited action or can not play then this little guy will be forced to carry the load, which he did well last week. I see the running game being fine either way.

Philip Rivers has had a great season so far, and i think he will continue that against this suspect secondary, hopefully he can get the chargers off to a quick start and an early lead. Overall i see this being a very hard fought game but i see the chargers playing better on offense and on defense and eventually winning this game to improve to 1-2.

Prediction: San Diego 27, Jets 14
