The Los Angeles Chargers will open the season by playing host to last year’s AFC West champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. Both sides will be without stars on defense as both Joey Bosa and Eric Berry will miss today’s game. The Chargers have lost eight consecutive games to their division rivals, but the home team is considered the favorite this afternoon.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, September 9, 2018, at 1:05 p.m. PT at StubHub Center in Carson, CA.
