NFL Preseason Football Live Online Streaming on NFL Network: San Diego Chargers at Arizona Cardinals
The Chargers have yet to win this NFL preseason and are coming off a 33-28 loss to the Chicago Bears last weekend. They will have extra incentive to win tonight as their new offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is the former Cardinals head coach. That could play to the favor of Arizona as they are more than familiar with Whisenhunt's playcalling style.
One area quarterback Philip Rivers and the Chargers need to improve in are turnovers. Last week they turned the ball over four times and those turnovers turned out to be the difference between a win and a loss.
Arizona has been the sleeper hit of the preseason after shutting out Green Bay on the road and nearly doing the same to Dallas before giving up a late touchdown with the third stringers in the game. Their defense has been giving up big plays and yardage, but has managed to make big plays of their own - namely forcing turnovers - at the most opportune and critical times of a drive.
New head coach Bruce Arians is working to find stability at the quarterback position for a team that has had none since Kurt Warner retired several seasons ago. The combination of Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton haven't been spectacular, but they've avoided making costly mistakes and played well enough to move the ball and put some points on the board. Unlike last season, Larry Fitzgerald is getting the ball thrown in his direction multiple times per game.
Arizona is better on paper than the Chargers right now in just about every facet of the game save for throwing the ball. A big first half from Rivers could lead to an upset win and deliver the Cardinals their first loss of the preseason. Another Arizona win will get the league talking about the dark horse potential of a team that was horrible last season.

NFL revised drug and banned substances penalties
Player conduct is one of the most important things that the NFL is concerned about. Following this, no mercy is given a player is deemed to be behaving contrary to the set of regulation. Apart from maintaining league discipline in the national football league, the drug rules are part of the most welcome amongst the players although criticism cannot be hidden. Drug rules were conceived when many players were suspected to be playing under influence and apart from just being indiscipline and ineffective players, their health was being weakened and this could translate to very bad criticism and fall of reputation to the league as a whole.
The national football league introduced drug rules long ago but was revised in the year 2007 with more tough requirements and penalties this time round. One of the repercussions was that players would dig deeper into their pockets for their misconducts in relation to the drug policy. Performance enhancement drugs and especially steroids were quite inevitable among many players. In the same year, the NFL made it clear that EPO, a blood boosting substance to their list of banned substances. this was after intensive discussions and negotions between the officials of the players union and those of the league.
Among the agreed penalties of misconducct and use of banned substances among plyers included suspension to players who would be evidenced as using the drugs. Apart from this, players should be forfeited off their bonuses by an a determined percentage and even more tough, such players in their first time of testing positive cannot be paid during the time they are away on suspensions. Formerly, the salaries would be cut down but the bnusess maintauined yet in most instances, players get bonuses that are mopre fat than their salaries.
The NFL commissioner on behalf of the league Roger Goodell while announcing these changes in the drug and banned substances policy had expressed concern that its programs were being affected because of the wide usage of drugs among players. And this was not only the end because this regulation can be amended in future either to toughen it further or make it more use-friendly.
To make the players more responsible, this policy was implemented with tougher actions such that the testing of drug users would be done weekly and that any ten team players would selected randomly for the samples and EPO test as taken more seriously. Previously only seven members would be selected for the test and a total of about 10000 would undergo the test in the league which means that from 2007, this of players tested in each season is about 12000. In the United States by then, there was no other league that would carry EPO test at that close interval.
