When the NFL finally announced the entire 2021 league schedule earlier this month they also revealed all of the opponent’s for each team’s three-game preseason slate, minus the oh-so important start times and dates.
Now, we’ve got them.
The Chargers get matched up with their cross-town rival, the Rams, in Game 1, which will of course be played in SoFi Stadium. This will be the first time fans will be able to attend a game inside of the new venue so I expect this game to have a massive attendance. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. PT and the Bolts will be the away team.
Their second game will be back in SoFi but the Chargers will be hosting the 49ers. This game will feature both Bosa brothers and the fans will also get to see 2021 first-round quarterback, Trey Lance. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. PT.
Lastly, the Chargers will finish the preseason by traveling north to take on the Seahawks. The majority of the starters aren’t likely to play in this one but it’s still one more game to watch the backups play as they fight for one of the few remaining jobs on the roster. That game will also start at 7 p.m. PT.
