Lessons from Chargers preseason loss against Saints

Lessons from Chargers preseason loss against Saints

LOS ANGELES, CA- The Chargers blew a 14 point lead in the second half to stay winless this preseason by a score of 19-17 to the New Orleans Saints.

"He had some penalties that put him behind the eight-ball", Lynn said.

The Saints drove to the Chargers 4-yard line on their next possession, but undrafted rookie Devine Ozigbo fumbled after being hit by Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman, with undrafted rookie safety Adarius Pickett from UCLA recovering for the Chargers at their 9-yard line.

So much, in fact, the Saints coach compared Drew Brees and Teddy Bridgewater's backup to Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young. Anthony Lanier sacked Hill on the two-point conversion attempt, keeping the Chargers in the lead.

Barty within one win of returning to No.1
Last week in Toronto, Kenin knocked off Barty on her way to the last four, allowing Osaka to jump ahead of Barty for No.1. Barty again had to overcome a sloppy first set where she led 5-2 before dropping the set to Greece's Maria Sakkari 5-7.

"But Chargers rookie Jerry Tillery already understands the business of football and how doing things like he did Sunday against New Orleans is good for business".

The reason? Rivers has gotten more than enough "live" action in joint practice sessions against the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints.

Hill has lined up at receiver, running back and tight end for the Saints since they signed him in 2017, but coach Sean Payton has been impressed with how Hill has looked at his natural position during training camp. "Today I just didn't give those guys the energy they deserve". Going against the Saints, who are a good football team, it helps get us prepared for the season. "I thought offensively, we were very bad".

"That hasn't changed", Payton said.
