The Los Angeles Chargers showed signs of dramatic improvement in the final month of 2020.
Will that trend carry over into the upcoming 2021 season?
The Chargers had some growing pains last year with a rookie quarterback, as might be expected. But after starting the campaign with nine losses in 12 games, L.A. finished on a four-game winning streak.
Justin Herbert, the sixth overall pick in the 2020 draft, ultimately finished the season with more passing yards (4,336) than MVP Aaron Rodgers, more touchdown passes (31) than Drew Brees, and fewer interceptions (10) than Tom Brady. He’ll look to build on his first-year success under a new head coach, as Brandon Staley takes over for Anthony Lynn in Los Angeles.
Since 2009, the Chargers have only qualified for the playoffs twice and haven’t won an AFC West title in that span, but hopes are high in Hollywood. Familiar names like Keenan Allen at wide receiver and Joey Bosa at defensive end, both Pro Bowlers a season ago, should once again make their impact felt for a young team that appears to be on the rise.
Although this is the franchise’s fifth season in Los Angeles since moving north from San Diego, it will be the Chargers’ first year playing in SoFi Stadium in front of spectators. The $5 billion venue opened in time for the 2020 season, but fans were not allowed to attend Chargers home games last year due to the pandemic.
L.A.’s 2021 season begins on the road with a September 12 visit to Washington, followed by the Chargers’ home opener in Week 2 against Dallas. AFC West play begins in earnest the following weekend, as Los Angeles faces off with five-time defending division champion Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Chargers will have one Monday Night Football showcase this fall, a Week 4 home game against the Raiders. Other highlights of the schedule include a Sunday night game at Pittsburgh in Week 11 and a Thursday night visit from the Chiefs in Week 15. The regular season ends with back-to-back divisional games vs. Denver and at Las Vegas.
