The third preseason game is traditionally when the starters see the majority of the action. That’s expected to be the case when the Saints host the Chargers on Friday night in an intriguing matchup that will be nationally televised on CBS. After posting a 25-10 win over the Bears, the Chargers dropped a 16-14 decision to the Cowboys in their second preseason outing. Philip Rivers was 11-for-15 for 125 yards and an INT, while adding a rushing TD. Billy Volek and Jonathan Crompton combined to go 8-for-18 for 102 yards and a pick in relief of Rivers.
