SAN DIEGO -- Shannon Eastin made history. Some of the players she was officiating made it look ugly.
"I think it's exciting for her," said Chargers coach Norv Turner, who took a photo with Eastin before the game. "She was confident and in control."
The preseason opener for both teams was predictably sloppy at times, filled with fumbles, interceptions and missed assignments.
Many of the players still need some work after their first preseason performances.
The Chargers also lost a fumble on a handoff exchange between Rivers and Michael Hayes on the first play of the next series.
Rivers was 3 for 5 for 37 yards and was done after his fumble.
Rodgers threw for 16 yards on 2-of-8 passing.
The list grew longer early in the first quarter when starting linebacker Desmond Bishop went down after a group of players fell on his right leg while he was finishing a tackle. He was unable to put any weight on his leg while being helped to the sideline.
"It's disappointing," Rivers said. "You hate it for him, first of all, and then obviously it affects the team. It's just unfortunate -- first carry of the season -- but he'll still bounce back and have a great year."
Lee, who was undrafted out of LSU, hit Vincent Brown on a 27-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and also helped set up Curtis Brinkley's 1-yard dive that made it 21-13 with just under 2 minutes left. He finished 15 of 22.
"We did some good things at times and then we went through some rough patches," Harrell said. "Hopefully, we will get better."
