The NFL preseason 2013 live stream and TV games continue through Thursday night, as the week 4 action goes down. This is the last week of the preseason for all NFL teams, as they'll look towards the regular season in about a week's time or so. One of tonight's televised and live streaming NFL games will feature the San Francisco 49ers vs. San Diego Chargers, with TV coverage thanks to NFL Network.
According to an Aug. 29 report via SBNation, tonight's game won't feature many starters if any, but it will feature younger players and newcomers vying for roster spots. Among the issues that the 49ers need to solve for the upcoming season will be their wide receiver spot. Currently, Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham have injuries, with Anquan Boldin as their starter and Vernon Davis as the No. 2 option. Jon Baldwin is another newcomer at the position, who the team acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chargers are coming into this game off a victory over the Cardinals 24-7 last week, giving them their first win of the preseason. While starters won't play much in this game, there's three new players on the offensive line including rookie D.J. Fluker who may see increased minutes in tonight's game. While the team may be deciding on a few offensive positions to fill for the season, they'll be more interested in who they keep around to play defense. Another player to keep an eye on is Robert Meachum, as he is probably going to be "fighting for his job," and may look to impress in the fourth quarter.
The current odds for this game have the 49ers as three point favorites to win it. Weather reports indicate cloudy skies for tonight's game with temperatures around the mid to high 70's. These two teams will officially open their regular seasons up in over a week from now, with the Chargers playing the Texans, and San Francisco playing the Packers in week 1.
Tonight's 49ers vs. Chargers game has a start time of 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The game, which will be held at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, will be televised on the NFL Network.
