Say it with me NFL fans. "Thank God the preseason is over." Feel better now? I thought so.
The San Diego Chargers wrapped up their final preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night, marking the road to their first regular season game, which will take place a week from Monday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Philip Rivers and the rest of the first team offense had the night off for the Chargers. They sat and watched the second and third team offense drop a 17-14 decision to the 49ers, who finished the preseason unbeaten, not that it means anything at all.
Backup quarterback Billy Volek was intercepted twice and third stringer Jonathan Crompton was intercepted on the Chargers' final drive with just under a minute left that secured the 49ers' victory.
While the first team didn't step up on the field, here are five observations on the offensive performers that did play Thursday night.
