NFL action is set to take place on 8/26/22 and it will feature Los Angeles Chargers at New Orleans Saints. The game is set to take place at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The game starts at 8:00 PM EST and should be on locally.

The Chargers have to be thankful it is only the preseason. The Chargers last game was the second straight loss in the preseason for the Chargers. What was really shocking was the fact that the loss was against the Dallas Cowboys and came with a score of 32-18.

Chargers Offense

Offensively the Chargers used 2 different quarterbacks. The quarterbacks went a combined 24/41 for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers did end up getting picked off once in the game, but the Chargers gave up 3 sacks for a loss of 26 yards. Running the ball Los Angeles ended up getting 77 yards on a total of 25 carries.

Chargers Defense

The defensive side of the ball seen the Chargers allow Dallas to go 11/18 for 127 yards. The good news is the Chargers did not give up any touchdowns and recorded a sack for a loss of 7 yards. Los Angeles did give up 115 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Cowboys ran the ball a total of 33 times in the game.

New Orleans is coming here with the same record as the Chargers at 0-2. The Saints last game ended up being a loss against the Green Bay Packers. In the game the Saints allowed 20 points to be scored and were only able to counter with 10 points of their own.

Saints Offense

Ian Book was the only quarterback the Saints used in the losing effort. Book went 16/28 for 113 yards with a touchdown, but was picked off once in the game. The Saints did give up 2 sacks in the game. When it came to the rushing attack New Orleans ended up getting a total of 133 yards picked up on the day and carried the ball 27 times.

Saints Defense

Defensively the Saints allowed the Packers to go 13/25 for 111 yards and a touchdown. The Saints did end up getting a sack in the game with a loss of 2 yards. New Orleans rushing defense gave up 178 yards and a touchdown in the game while facing only 34 carries in the game.

Los Angeles Chargers at New Orleans Saints Odds: Chargers +3, Saints -3

Over/Under Odds: 36.5

Los Angeles Chargers at New Orleans Saints Pick: New Orleans Saints -3, Under 36.5

Odds from Betonline.ag 

The Saints have been trying out a new quarterback and by the third game of the preseason should have a lot of the kinks worked out. I look for the Saints offense to show up good, but also for the proper adjustments to be made on the defensive side to keep the Chargers rushing offense in check and that allows the Saints to secure the win, but look for the total to go on the under in this game.
