The San Diego Chargers offense was very efficient with the football in their first preseason game and it likely will be a look at things to come. The team is continuing off of their success from last season. The team only had 2 incompletions in the first preseason game and those came in the 4th quarter.

Philip Rivers had a career year and was efficient with the football all of last season. The team looked to get rid of the football quickly and found quick outlets to dump the ball off to when the pressure came. The team will be looking to have the same success this year.
With Frank Reich calling the shots on offense, the team will be running a similar offense to last season and will look to continue their success of efficiency in the passing game. Reich gives the keys to Philip Rivers to run the offense and it should be fun seeing Rivers run through the league with more experience in the offense. Philip also will have more options in the passing game with Malcom Floyd back. He will also have more depth in the running game with Donald Brown taking some reps.
The Chargers offense looks ready to make big things happen again. They have some tough defenses on the schedule this year, so they will need to be ready to move the ball down the field. It should be fun to watch.
