According to the leading source of NFL schedule release news and rumors, @OzzyNFL the Los Angeles Chargers schedule will kick off against the Las Vegas Raiders at home in SoFi Stadium.

It is fitting for the overhauled Chargers would face off against the opponent that sealed the fates of Tom Telesco and Brandon Staley, indirectly leading to the hiring of Jim Harbaugh and Joe Hortiz among myriad other moves. Not only that but Telesco will be forced to return to his old stomping grounds for his first official game as Raiders GM.

Rumor: Chargers Scheduled to Play Raiders Week 1

The Chargers have won the last three matchups against the Raiders when they have played at SoFi, but they have split the last three season series with their AFC West foe.

Both teams saw significant changes to their front offices, coaching staff, and roster this offseason, so this game will serve as a good barometer for how their respective seasons will play out.
