The release of the long-awaited 2021 schedule has come and gone and it’s now time for fans to begin devising the Chargers’ ideal path to a Super Bowl.
The Chargers have plenty of exciting matchups on this year’s schedule but I want to know which specific game is piquing your interest the most? Which matchup on the 2021 slate are you most excited for?
Besides the primetime matchups against divisional opponents, the one matchup I’m really excited for is their week six game against the Ravens. Baltimore finally gave Lamar Jackson a legitimate WR1 to throw to on top of their dominant rushing attack. The run defense of the Chargers has long been one of their weaknesses and this game will be an excellent test ahead of their bye week to see just how complete their defense can be. The Browns will also be a tough challenge, but Baker Mayfield is not Jackson. The Ravens will have threats all over the field, including the guy under center. I can’t wait to see what Brandon Staley will have cooked up for stopping Jackson.
Your turn. Let me know which game(s) you already have circled in red on your calendars.
