Seems to be some good discussion of this issue here:

I can use chrome://net-export/ to create the log file when I access the CSV link. But I don’t know what to look for in the log file, could you take a look at the generated file on what to see in it? Thanks.

Hmm, I took a look, and it’s not jumping out at me either unfortunately. This is a tricky one.

The ‘blob’ link from Downloads doesn’t seem to help. It looks like clicking on CSV is executing a server-side script which then passes the data off to you, for your browser to download.

Unfortunately the easiest next step may be to try capturing it with Wireshark.
