Analysis of Los Angeles Chargers’ 27-24 victory over 49ers - Gavino Borquez
Adderley, who missed the first three preseason games with a hamstring injury, made his debut on Thursday night. The second-round pick flashed in a variety of ways, including his first professional interception on quarterback Wilton Speight in the fourth-quarter.

Ranking the NFL's toughest 2019 schedules from 1-32 - Aaron Schatz (insider)
The Chargers lose a home game to play in Mexico, but they're also one of only two teams that doesn't have to play a single opponent coming off either a bye week or a Thursday night "half-bye" week.

NFL playoff team tiers: Rating all 12 based on their chances to return - Field Yates (insider)
It's hard to poke many holes in the Chargers' roster at full strength, as GM Tom Telesco has assembled a balanced squad with some game-changers at integral spots. But star safety Derwin James is now dealing with a months-long recovery due to a fifth metatarsal fracture, and Keenan Allen is nursing an ankle injury, though he is expected back by Week 1, per colleague Adam Schefter. Beyond that, left tackle Russell Okung is recovering from a pulmonary embolism that could keep him off the field to begin the season; Trent Scott is a candidate to start in place of him if need be. Melvin Gordon continues to seek a new contract, leaving his early-season status in doubt.
