The Los Angeles Chargers take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 of the preseason. The game kicks off at 7:00 p.m. (PT) on KABC-TV in Los Angeles/Orange County (additional affiliates are listed here) and can be heard on KFI-AM 640 radio. It also re-airs on NFL Network at 10 p.m. (PT). Here is our open thread.

LET’S GO CHARGERS!

It’s just preseason, but this is exciting. I’m sure we’ll all get bored halfway through the game, but a lot of these guys will be giving it their all to earn a spot on the team.

Don’t expect the starters to see a ton of snaps in their first game of the preseason. We usually see that happen in Weeks 2-3. The Chargers are already keeping some of their key players out of this game.

Chargers announce QB Philip Rivers, WR Keenan Allen, CB Trevor Williams, CB Casey Hayward and DE Joey Bosa not expected to play tonight vs. Cardinals.

It’s smart. You don’t need any of those guys getting hurt in a meaningless game. It’ll be the Geno Smith-Cardale Jones show tonight. We’ll also get to see rookies Derwin James, Uchenna Nwosu and Kyzir White make their debuts.

So sit back, relax, watch some Chargers football and, if you’d like, chat with your fellow fans in the comments section below.
