Another lackluster performance in LA as Chargers fall to Saints

The Saints and Chargers will be familiar with each other after they engaged in joint practices at the latter's practice facility in Costa Mesa, California, August 17-19.

Kamara, who was selected by the Saints in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, is now behind Adrian Peterson and former Alabama RB Mark Ingram on New Orleans' depth chart.

Led by swarming linebackers on the first- and second-team defense, the Saints beat the Chargers on Sunday night at the StubHub Center en route to a 13-7 win that gave New Orleans its first preseason victory since 2014 - ending a 10-game losing streak. No key offensive starters in the backfield against the Chargers, no problem.

QB depth chart: Philip Rivers suited up but did not play. The University of OR product finished 10-of-17 for 99 yards, with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Saints looks to bounce back from Thursday's defeat at Cleveland against the Browns, while the Chargers lost to the Seahawks. It was the only score for the Chargers, and it came against the offense.

Iran parliament clears oil, foreign ministers for Rouhani's new cabinet
A United Nations resolution endorsing the deal has a section that "calls upon" Iran to avoid such tests without specifically banning them.

Two incomplete passes led to a punt and on the first Saints play of the evening running back Alvin Kamara took a handoff from Chase Daniel (Drew Brees also had the night off by design) and ran 50 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

The Chargers are 0-2 and next week they get to truly fight for L.A. when they hit the road to play the Rams at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Saturday.

Outside of Kamara and the starting offensive line, the offense barely had any other highlights until some solid running by rookies Darius Victor and Trey Edmunds in the fourth quarter. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn has preached balance, but so far his offense has failed to run the ball consistently, averaging just 2.7 yards per carry. Klein had five tackles, one for loss, half a sack and a lightning-quick blitz that set up a sack for defensive end Alex Okafor. The Iowa product appears to be carving out a role on defense. Hairston slid over to left tackle, with rookie Sam Tevi handling duties at right tackle. The drop-off to backups Tyreek Burwell on the left side and Chris Hairston on the right was evident, as the Chargers only gained 31 yards on 15 plays in the first quarter.
