2010 San Diego Chargers Schedule

san diego chargersThe 2010 San Diego Chargers Schedule is challenging despite the fact that they captured the AFC West division last season and tabbed a 13-3 record. After a mediocre 2-3 start to the year through five games, the Chargers reeled off 11-straight victories to close out the 2009 regular season en route to a playoff berth.

After receiving a first-round Bye, the Chargers faced the New York Jets in the Divisional round of the playoffs, and came up short, losing and ending their run at a Super Bowl.

Entering their 2010 NFL Schedule, the Chargers will be without a familiar face in offensive back field, as running back LaDainian Tomlinson joined the New York Jets in the off-season, as well as cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who also joined the Jets.

Looking ahead to the San Diego Chargers 2010 NFL Schedule, they will tangle with the NFC West in their out-of-conference games, that will include the division champion Arizona Cardinals. The Chargers will also face New England and Indianapolis, which will likely be two games NFL fans mark down on their calendar as they approach.

San Diego Chargers 2010 Regular Season Schedule

Monday, September 13, 2010 @ 10:15pm (ESPN) - San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs

The Charger start out the gate against division opponent Kansas City, for which the Chargers took both in the season series in 2009 and will look for that trend to continue in the 2010 NFL season.

Sunday, September 19, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Chargers host the Jaguars in Weeks 2, as quarterback Phillip Rivers and company take on Jaguar quarterback David Garrard, who is known for not making many mistakes, but at the same time not taking many chances.

Sunday, September 26, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at Seattle Seahawks

The Chargers face their first NFC West opponent in Week 3 of the season, traveling on the road to Seattle. The Seahawks struggled in 2009, but quarterback Matt Hasselback is plenty capable of burning defenses and secondaries with his arm.

Sunday, October 3, 2010 @ 4:15pm (Fox) - San Diego Chargers vs. Arizona Cardinals

This is one of the more interesting games on the San Diego Chargers 2010 NFL Schedule as two division champions out of the West battle it out in an early season match up. The Cardinals will be without quarterback Kurt Warner however, who retired at the end of last season, leaving the duties to Matt Leinart.

Sunday, October 10, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders

Sand Diego took both games from Oakland last year and have owned the series recently. Still, the Chargers will likely need to be careful in this one despite the Raiders finishing below .500 every year since they made the Super Bowl in 2004.

Sunday, October 17, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at St. Louis Rams

On paper, this is one of the easier games for San Diego. The Rams were the worst team in the league last season, winning only one game and selecting Sam Bradford from Oklahoma with the first pick in the draft.

Sunday, October 24, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers vs. New England Patriots

This is one of games of the season on paper as the the Chargers will host the Patriots. There is a hateful history in recent years between these two playoff rivals. New England does not like San Diego, and vice versa. This one could have fireworks.

Sunday, October 31, 2010 @ 4:05pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers vs. Tennessee Titans

The Chargers face the Titans in this mid-season match up of the two hottest teams to close out the 2009 regular season. Too bad Tennessee didn't make the playoffs however.

Sunday, November 7, 2010 @ 1:00pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at Houston Texans

Sand Diego visit Houston prior to their bye week, looking to get a win before what is likely to be a tough two-game stretch for them. Houston has improved over the course of the last several years and can no long be slept on.

Sunday, November 14, 2010 - Bye

Monday, November 22, 2010 @ 8:30pm (ESPN) - San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos

This is a critical mid-season divisional match up for both teams, and the first meeting between them. The two teams split the season series a year ago, with the Chargers taking the latter.

Sunday, November 28, 2010 @ 8:20 pm (NBC) - San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts

The Chargers travel to the Colts and will play in prime time on NBC in what will likely be the game of the week in Week 12 of the 2010 NFL Season, featuring two of the elite quarterbacks in the league in Rivers and Peyton Manning

Sunday, December 5, 2010 @ 4:05pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers vs. Oakland Raiders

San Diego won both games against Oakland last year, and will likely be the favorite in this one again as Oakland has struggled for the better part of a decade to string together wins.

Sunday, December 12, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This AFC West match up puts the last place finisher from 2009 against the Division Champion. The Chargers made easy work of Kansas City a year ago, but late divisional match ups are always critical in terms of playoff scenarios.

Thursday, December 16, 2010 @ 8:20pm (NFL) - San Diego Chargers vs. San Fransisco 49ers

The Chargers play the last of their NFC West opponents in Week 15 against the 49ers, who were up and coming in 2009. The story for them in 2010 has yet to be written but this could be a big game for both.

Sunday, December 26, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

The Chargers make their way to Cincinnati to face another division champion from 2009 in the Bengals. The final games are usually the most important and the same hold true when these two playoff teams from a year ago collide late in the year.

Sunday, January 2, 2010 @ 4:15pm (CBS) - San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos

The last game of the season match the Chargers against the Broncos. Denver and San Diego each bested each other once last season. This is a game to mark on the calendar a potential division decider.
