The Chargers 2021 is extremely close to being set, but there’s still the details of location to be fleshed out before you can start planning your schedules for next season.
According to this nifty graphic tweeted by Lee Sharpe of Pro Football Focus, we already who the Chargers will play in all 16 — or 17 — regular games in 2021.
Aside from their six divisional matchups, the Bolts will also face the entirety of both the AFC North and NFC East, as well as the Houston Texans and New England Patriots. Should the 17th game be added, they will also play the Minnesota Vikings.
The slate against the AFC North will arguably the most-difficult part of the 2021 schedule while another matchup with the Patriots is not something any Chargers fan wants to see anytime soon. Getting the whole NFC East really helps balance that out, however, as the entire division will finish with a sub-.500 record this season.
