SAN DIEGO AT SAN FRANCISCO, 4:00 PM (ET)
The San Francisco 49ers host the San Diego Chargers in week three
of the NFL preseason. Last week the Chargers got crushed by the Seattle
Seahawks, 41-14. Meanwhile, the 49ers didn't fare much better,
losing to the Denver Broncos, 34-0.
So far, Phillip Rivers has looked strong in limited game action.
Expect him to get more playing time as he continues to get ready
for the regular season.
San Francisco however, has been the opposite. In the two games they've played, the Niners
have been outscored, 57-3 (0-2 ATS). Eyes will be on QB Colin Kaepernick, who starts his
second full season under center. In the first two preseason games, he has completed 6-of-10 passes;
no TDs or INTs. As is the case with most of
the starters, he is expected to see the bulk of the playing time.
SPORTS NETWORK CHOICE: Take San Diego at +6 points.
