Football is so close you can almost taste it! Not really, but they have stuff scheduled now! Here's who the Chargers will be playing in 4 meaningless games before they start the real games.
Week 1: Green Bay Packers at San Diego Chargers (8/9)
Week 2: Dallas Cowboys at San Diego Chargers
Week 3: San Diego Chargers at Minnesota Vikings
Week 4: San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers (8/30)
Yes, those are the only two dates given. Here's proof:
SD Preseason Home Sched: Wk1 Packers (8/9), Wk2 Cowboys. Away: Wk3 Vikings, Wk4 49ers (8/30).— San Diego Chargers (@chargers) April 4, 2012
I'm going to assume that's because those two are Thursday games. The Cowboys and Vikings games are probably on Saturdays (8/18, 8/25). I think that's the normal preseason game day, anyway.
Annoying that the Chargers are playing two away games to end the preseason, and they'll probably only be 5 days apart. Good thing that Week 4 game doesn't mean anything, right? Also, I'm assuming this increases the chances of starting the regular season in San Diego.
