Quick Take: Chargers top Pack in sloppy opener

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Thursday's preseason games

» Chargers running back Ryan Mathews erased an offseason of optimism after breaking his clavicle on his first carry. He's now set to miss four to six weeks.

» The Packers' young safeties struggled. This isn't a new trend.

» Underrated Packers starting inside linebacker Desmond Bishop left the game with a knee injury and didn't return.

» We love it when guys who have made noise all offseason back up that performance. Antonio Gates looked like the Antonio Gates of old on a 23-yard touchdown. And Packers receiver Randall Cobb looked too good to keep off the field, leading the team in receiving.
