The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Chargers meet up in Week 2 of the 2023 NFL preseason at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m. ET and the game will air on the NFL Network. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser-known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching check out the Saints roster and the Chargers roster.

Saints fans were treated to the return of Michael Thomas and Jimmy Graham in Week 1, and they also got a glimpse of new quarterback Derek Carr in his debut. Carr looked at ease in controlling the offense, completing 6-of-8 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans’ 26-24 win. The second-team offense looked just as efficient, highlighted by a 29-yard touchdown pass from Jameis Winston to rookie wide receiver A.T. Perry.

It appears that Brandon Staley will sit his starters throughout the preseason, so Chargers fans will only get an inkling of the team’s offensive scheme under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Backup quarterback Easton Stick looked calm with his reps and rookie receiver Quentin Johnston flashed his athleticism with a nice over-the-shoulder pass that he was unable to haul in. The run game will be key watch throughout the offseason as backups Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller take the majority of snaps.

The Saints are a 3-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -170 on the moneyline. The Chargers are a +142 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 37.5 with the over/under juiced to -110.
