The San Diego Chargers have released the preliminary 2014 schedule. The list of opponents have the Bolts playing the usual suspects in the AFC West as well as some of the teams we love to see them beat.
The Patriots, Bills and Dolphins are on the schedule as well as the Jets, Seahawks and Cardinals. Seeing the Patriots and Seahawks on the schedule as well as the 49ers means that the Chargers are moving up in the rankings. The NFL rules match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season.
The Rams, Jaguars and Ravens round out the opponents list. With all the dates and times still TBA, but it’s good to know who is on the radar so the guys can start planning in March.
