Will we finally see Phillip Rivers and rookie rusher Melvin Gordon for an extended period of time? Both players saw the field in limited action 2 weeks ago. Last week they were both sidelined. NFL Preseason Week 3 is known as the dress-rehearsal for starters. 

"We’re cultivating that culture that we’re just going to dominate every single snap," Chargers Linebacker Manti Te’o was quoted by ESPN . "We’re not going to win every single snap, but we know that we’re going to win most of them.

"At first, you’ve got to believe that you are going to do it. And I think for the most part we all believe, and our coach has faith in us that he can call whatever he’s going to call, and we’re going to execute it. And we’re going to go out there and dominate."

Will there finally be Marshawn Beastmode Lynch sighting for the Seahawks this week? If he plays as expected, I am going to make the Seahawks my betting pick for their preseason week 3 matchup. Lynch has been salivating to hit the field after his number wasn’t called for the Seahawks final play in their Super Bowl 50 loss to the Pats.

Russell Wilson has been the most affected from Lynch’s absence as opposing defenses have focused on not giving him enough time to play his game. Wilson went 9 of 15 for 78 yards with 0 TDs and 0 INTs against the Kansas City Chiefs.
