Fans of the Los Angeles Chargers outside of the LA market get to experience a treat.

The Chargers are nationally televised with no other competing games on two weeks in a row! Last week it was Thursday Night Football against the Oakland Raiders, and this Monday Night it is against another division rival in the Kansas City Chiefs.

Outside of postseason, it has been quite ahwile since the Bolts were nationally televised like this for two straight weeks. These are big games too. Division battles where the AFC West is closer than ever.

Of course, the Chargers could not get it done against Derek Carr and company last Thursday. That said, the Bolts are only two games out of first place in the AFC West. A win over Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs would be massive and likely a season savior.

Not only will Monday’s game be nationally televised, the contest will also take place in Mexico City, which should create international attention and interest.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the Chargers to not only resurrect their challenging season and defeat a key division opponent, but also the team can perform in a marquee time slot with multiple countries watching.

Hopefully, for the Chargers, the result on Monday night will be much more positive than the last time the team was in front of a national audience.
