NFL preseason Week 3, Saints at Chargers: How to watch, stream on CBS and CBS All Access
The dress rehearsal will pit Drew Brees against his former team
The NFL's third week of the preseason is generally referred to as the dress rehearsal, which is to say it's the most fans will see of their starters before the season starts. With that in mind, the Saints are returning to face the team Drew Brees started his career with -- albeit in a different city -- the Los Angeles Chargers.
Both of these teams have high hopes coming into this season, as longtime friends Philip Rivers and Drew Brees try to get season ready before their Sept. 9 opening day. The Saints should see heavy playing time from stars like Brees, Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas, whereas the Chargers should be fielding a lot of Rivers, Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen.
The Saints are trying to build off of a playoff appearance last season, whereas the Chargers are looking to take the next step and get back into the postseason behind a talented core of players.
