Los Angeles Chargers Schedule 2020 Los Angeles Chargers Schedule

7-9, 3rd AFC West

@ KC

9:25 pm GMT , 1/3

The Chargers are one of the teams who will be on quarterback from Week 1 as Tyrod Taylor is expected to begin the season as the starter but first-round pick Justin Herbert will be touted to take over early in the season. If the Chargers are winning games, making the switch will be tougher for Anthony Lynn. Luckily for Bolts fans hoping to see their rookie QB early on, the schedule could be conducive to that - a four-week stretch including the Super Bowl champion Chiefs and road games against the Buccaneers and Saints could put the Chargers at 1-4 or 2-3 entering Week 6. That seems like the best time for Herbert to take over, as home games against the Jets, Jaguars, and Raiders sandwiching a road date with the Dolphins is by far their easiest stretch. Traditionally, a team’s bye week is the natural time to make a quarterback change, but with LA’s bye week not until Week 10 and road games against the elite Broncos and Bills defenses immediately following it, that would be a rough time for Herbert to take over. The Chargers’ defense figures to be very good and with the 9th-easiest schedule in terms of opponents’ expected win totals, they could actually do better than most expect. However, the narrative all year will be when Herbert makes his inevitable first start.
