The Los Angeles Chargers host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 of the preseason. Here is our open thread.
The Chargers will look to rebound at home after losing to the Cardinals in Arizona a week ago. They will take on Russell Wilson and a Seahawks team that isn’t as feared like it was a couple of years ago.

We’ll get to see Philip Rivers in action for the first time in 2018. According to ESPN’s Eric D. Williams, head coach Anthony Lynn didn’t say how long he will keep his veteran quarterback in the game. Williams also reported that starters DE Joey Bosa and CB Trevor Williams are not expected to suit up as they are still nursing minor injuries. RG Forrest Lamp, who participated in individual drills in practice, has a chance to play next week. Lamp missed all of last season with a torn ACL, so his addition would be huge.
The Chargers played decent in their first game, but they need to cut down on the turnovers and penalties. Geno Smith outplayed Cardale Jones, so let’s see if he gets the nod after Rivers. Rookies Derwin James, Uchenna Nwosu and Kyzir White flashed potential last week and will hopefully continue to do the same. The wide receiver competition and running back competition has great, so that’s two other things to watch.
Enjoy the game!
