The 2020 schedule is here and obviously this team is going 16-0.
(Gets handed a memo)
What?! This isn’t my Madden franchise schedule? Well, dang.
Anyways, the Chargers are probably going to win some games and lose some games. That’s my bold prediction for 2020. But today let’s just chat about something a little less serious.
What’s your favorite game on the schedule so far?
The Chargers play two primetime games this year and unfortunately none of them are at home in SoFi. They play plenty of exciting opponents, they’re just not going to be under the bright lights.
I think my early favorite on the schedule right now might have to be the Week 1 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Now, this would be exponentially more exciting if we thought Justin Herbert would be starting for sure but the chances are that it’ll be Tyrod Taylor in that one.
But even without the glitz and the glam of two rookie quarterbacks duking it out, it’ll still be a ton of fun hoping that the Chargers give Burrow his own “welcome to the NFL” moment à la Nathan Peterman circa 2017.
Of course games against the Saints, Buccaneers, and Patriots will be exciting, but I’m pretty stoked about that season opener.
Which game are you all looking forward to? Which games do you think mean the most for this team to win? Let’s discuss.
