One step closer to football! We knew who the Chargers would be playing in their second consecutive season in Los Angeles – just not when. Well, now we know, so here goes:
Week 1: Vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1:05PM
Arguably, the perfect opponent to open up against. Maybe this will be the day the Chargers finally beat the Chiefs for the first time since 2013.
Week 2: @ Buffalo Bills, 10:00AM
Week 3: @ Los Angeles Rams, 1:05PM
The battle of LA comes early on in the season.
Week 4: Vs. San Francisco 49ers, 1:25PM
Week 5: Vs. Oakland Raiders, 1:05PM
Week 6: @ Cleveland Browns, 10:00AM
Week 7: Vs. Tennessee Titans, Wembley Stadium, London, 6:30AM
The highlight of the schedule. Chargers return to London for the first time in ten years. They ended up on the wrong side of a Philip Rivers-Drew Brees shootout, last time.
Week 8: BYE
Week 9: @ Seattle Seahawks, 1:05PM
Week 10: @ Oakland Raiders, 1:05PM
Two tough road games to come off the bye, too. These games could define where their season heads.
Week 11: Vs. Denver Broncos, 1:05PM
Week 12: Vs. Arizona Cardinals, 1:05PM
Week 13: @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 10:00AM
The team would like to avenge from a crushing last second loss back in 2015.
Week 14: Vs. Cincinnati Bengals 1:05PM
Week 15: @ Kansas City Chiefs (TNF), 5:20PM
The one and only prime time game for LA. That’s slightly disappointing…
Week 16: Vs. Baltimore Ravens, TBD
Week 17: @ Denver Broncos, 1:25PM
A tough last game, if you’re needing a win.
So, 16-0, right?
