Though the 2020 NFL schedule is yet to be officially released, we do know the opponents each team will face.

For the Los Angeles Chargers, 2020 marks the beginning of many new adventures. For one, the team will be playing in the brand new SoFi Stadium. It will also be the first season they have started without Philip Rivers since 2006.

It will be a new-look Chargers squad in many ways, but coming off an incredibly disappointing 5-11 season, it will be a team hungry to come out and make a statement. Though Rivers is no longer the quarterback, the general feeling is that the team still has a very talented roster that can make some noise this coming season.

Whether the team does or not will depend on a few key personnel decisions, starting with who will be the team’s starting quarterback. Decisions loom in regards to Hunter Henry and Melvin Gordon, but the team has already given Anthony Lynn a contract extension, showing faith in the direction he has in mind.

Looking at the 2020 season, the Chargers will play two games against the team that won the Super Bowl this past season as well as make their first trip ever into Las Vegas, and those are just the games within their division.

Looking at all of the opponents the Chargers will play in 2020, at least as things stand now with current rosters, here are the four most intriguing games the team will play.
