There's nothing more exciting in an NFL training camp practice than getting to see one team's two best on either side of the ball go at each other.

For the Los Angeles Chargers, there's no doubt that those two players are safety Derwin James and wide receiver Keenan Allen. And as soon as you hear James calling out for Allen to get one rep on a route, you know it's about to go down.

While this matchup wasn't spurned by bad blood nor a tussle from a hit in practice, the intensity can be felt nonetheless. You have to love seeing talent calling on talent to try and improve one's game, especially if you're a Chargers fan in this instance.

Both of these players are looking for a big 2020 season, especially James after he missed most of the 2019 NFL season with a stress fracture in his right foot.
