Let's consider this a bit of an open thread until the official word comes out. Until then, our old pal Marty Caswell can help us out:
Gehlken confirmed that the Chargers would once again be the last team to play in Week 1.
A late-night opener: Chargers will begin season Sept. 8 vs. Cardinals in Arizona. Second half to a MNF double-header.— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) April 23, 2014
Keep it locked here and I'll update this post as we learn more.
UPDATE: Here's the full schedule...
- Week 1: Chargers at Cardinals (Monday Night Football, ESPN)
- Week 2: Seahawks at Chargers
- Week 3: Chargers at Bills
- Week 4: Jaguars at Chargers
- Week 5: Jets at Chargers
- Week 6: Chargers at Raiders
- Week 7: Chiefs at Chargers
- Week 8: Chargers at Broncos (Thursday Night Football, NFL Network)
- Week 9: Chargers at Dolphins
- Week 10: Bye Week
- Week 11: Raiders at Chargers
- Week 12: Rams at Chargers
- Week 13: Chargers at Ravens
- Week 14: Patriots at Chargers (Sunday Night Football, NBC)
- Week 15: Broncos at Chargers
- Week 16: Chargers at 49ers (Saturday Night Football, NBC)
- Week 17: Chargers at Chiefs
Yes, playing the Cardinals in the last week of the preseason and the first week of the season is a little weird, but whatever. I'm more concerned with the back-to-back road games against Denver and Miami.
If the team can make it to the bye week in good shape, they will have a hell of an opportunity at the end of the season.
