San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Tre Lance used his second preseason game to show off his talent in a 15-10 win over the Chargers on Sunday in Los Angeles.
The third overall pick in a recent amateur auction completed eight of his 14 pass attempts for 102 yards. He also had two lead trails, one from five yards to Muhammad Sanu and one from 16 yards to Travis Benjamin. Lance, however, was the victim of an objection.
By comparison, the other two visiting hubs, Jimmy Garoppolo and Nate Sudfeld, only completed three deductions each. The 49ers added 148 rushing yards.
At Camp Chargers, receiver Josh Palmer scored his only major goal by taking a throw from the Easton Stick hub.
The Browns B beat the Giants
The Cleveland Browns claimed their second most pre-season win at First Energy Stadium, this time with a 17-13 score against the New York Giants.
Many attacking stars, however, were absent, including quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Daniel Jones, ball carriers Nick Chubb and Saquon Barkley, as well as wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry and Kenny Goladay, to name a few.
It was finally intercepted by defensive back Richard Leconte III, at the expense of pivotal Brian Loerke, in the giants’ last offensive push, which decided the outcome of the match.
Running back John Kelly was Brown’s most successful attack, with nine runs, including one that ended in the opposing end zone, for 58 yards.
