The Los Angeles Chargers will open the season by playing host to the Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts. The Bolts will be without superstar safety Derwin James, but they are otherwise remarkably healthy on the defensive side of the ball, and on offense the only meaningful player they are missing is left tackle Russell Okung. This game will no doubt be tough as almost all NFL contests are, but the Chargers are big favorites for good reason.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, September 8, 2019, at 1:05 p.m. PT at ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson, CA.
