The Los Angeles Chargers and New Orleans Saints will close out their preseason action on Friday, August 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Both teams lost their first two preseason contests as the Chargers lost to the Dallas Cowboys 32-18 last weekend, and the Saints were defeated by the Green Bay Packers 20-10.

The Chargers did not play Justin Herbert at quarterback this preseason, and Chase Daniel and Easton Stick have seen plenty of snaps under center. Daniel completed 13-of-21 passes for 111 yards with a touchdown against the Cowboys, and Stick threw for 134 yards with a touchdown and interception, completing 11-of-20 passes.
