San Diego, CA- Despite the official release not coming until 5pm, most of the Chargers schedule has been leaked out on twitter via The Mighty 1090’s Marty Caswell.
Caswell has reported via twitter that the San Diego Chargers will begin the season in Arizona against the Arizona Cardinals for the second game of ESPN’s Monday Night Football doubleheader to begin the season. The Chargers then return home the following week to take on the defending Super Bowl Champions Seattle Seahawks.
The schedule continues as followed….
Week 3: at Buffalo Bills
Week 4: v.s Jacksonville Jaguars
Week 5: v.s New York Jets
Week 6: at Oakland Raiders
Week 7: v.s Kansas City Chiefs
Week 8: at Denver Broncos
Week 9: at Miami Dolphins
Week 10: Bye
Week 11: v.s Oakland Raiders
Week 12: v.s St. Louis Rams
Week 13: at Baltimore Ravens
Week 14: v.s New England Patriots
Week 15: v.s Denver Broncos
Week 16: at San Francisco 49ers
Week 17: at Kansas City Chiefs
The Chargers will have four prime time games this season. The first being Week 1 at the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football, Week 8 at the Denver Broncos on the NFl Network’s Thursday Night Football, Week 14 at home against the New England Patriots on NBC’s Sunday Night Football and finally Week 16 at the San Francisco 49ers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Stay tuned in the next couple of days as we will breakdown and analyze each one of the Chargers opponents this upcoming season.
Off first glance this will defiantly not be an easy schedule for the Chargers, as their schedule is probably one of the toughest in the entire league this upcoming season. With that said I still fully expect to see the Chargers finish between (8-8) – (10-6) and make the playoffs once again as a wildcard.
