Saints vs. Chargers: Preseason Open Thread

The 2017 Saints Preseason continues in Southern California. Join us here for the game!

NFL: New Orleans Saints at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints continue the 2017 Preseason on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers tonight. I said this last week and I’ll say it again; wins and losses “don't mean anything” in the preseason but the Saints really need to get a win here, as they’re currently in the midst of a 10-game preseason losing streak. Winning breeds winning, and as the Saints have seen in recent years, losing breeds losing to start the season.

It should be interesting seeing the Saints playing in the smallest venue in the NFL by a wide margin, the 27,000 seat StubHub Center, which is roughly 12 miles south of the cavernous LA Memorial Coliseum. I will be among those in attendance, and will be expecting a large contingency of faithful and exuberant Saints to fill the intimate venue. Even though its “just an exhibition”, Who Dat Nation should make the Saints feel as much at home in the Chargers new venue as they did last year in their old one.
