The Los Angeles Chargers will take on the New Orleans Saints in their second preseason game.

Though the team lost its preseason opener to the Arizona Cardinals, there were some positives to take away from it. The first-team offense moved the ball quite well and did so without Philip Rivers or Melvin Gordon.

Tyrod Taylor played quite well and fifth-round pick Easton Stick made his mark. With that being said, time is starting to tick on those players who are fighting for spots on the roster.

After playing in Arizona, the Chargers now come home to host their first preseason game. The Saints will be on the other side of the field, a team the Chargers have faced often in recent preseason games.

The Saints are considered to be one of the best teams in the NFC, but in this game, we likely won’t see much of Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and the rest of the big-name stars for the Saints. Still, it’s a game in which a few bubble players need to put in some work as time to do so is wearing thin.

If the following players don’t start making plays when their number is called, their time in Los Angeles could certainly be coming to a close.
