10 facts

The Chargers 2024 schedule is here.

Information on single game tickets can be found here.

Here are 10 facts about the 2024 Chargers schedule:

1. Starting out at home — again

The Chargers will once again be kicking off their season at SoFi Stadium.

It will be the third consecutive year the Bolts won't have to travel for Week 1 — and the second time they get to do so against the division-rival Raiders.

This year will be just the second time in franchise history the Bolts will host Las Vegas to start the season, with the first coming in 2022.

That game saw a complete performance on both sides of the ball in a 24-19 Bolts win.

Quarterback Justin Herbert threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions, while the defense nabbed three interceptions and six sacks — 3.0 from Khalil Mack and 1.5 from Joey Bosa.

2. An identical Bye Week

New schedule, same bye week for the Chargers in 2024.

The Bolts week off this season comes during Week 5, which was the same case last season.

It'll be the fourth time the team's bye week comes during Week 5 since it was re-instituted in 1990.

3. Closing out the season in Vegas

The Bolts open their season against the Las Vegas and also get to close with them as well.

Week 18 will be just the seventh time in history the Chargers hit the road to close the season against the Raiders and the first since 2021.

Take a detailed look at who the Bolts will face in the 2024 season!!

4. Home cooking in November

November will be a crucial month for the Chargers with the way their schedule lined up.

The team hosts three consecutive home games starting on November 10th against the Titans before playing the Bengals and Ravens in the following weeks.

Three straight home games is not very common, as it is just the first time since 2017 the schedule has shaken out this way for the Bolts.

5. Monday night in Arizona

You have to go back just over 10 years for the last time the Chargers visited the Cardinals under the Monday night lights.

The Bolts will travel in Week 7 this year to face off against Arizona on Monday Night Football for only the third time in history, with the previous instance coming in 2014.

That matchup saw the Chargers open the regular season in Arizona as part of a Week 1 Monday night doubleheader.

Chargers Hall of Famer and legendary tight end Antonio Gates finished that game as the Bolts leading receiver hauling in six passes for 81 yards in primetime.

6. Multiple MNF games

Speaking of Monday night games, the Bolts doubled up on that primetime slot once again.

The Chargers will play in multiple Monday Night Football games for the third consecutive season in 2024.

After winning both Monday night games in 2022, the Bolts split their two primetime games in that slot last season.

They will now get a chance to play twice under the lights against the aforementioned Cardinals and the Ravens in what should be some fascinating matchups.

On the other side of things, the Bolts are not scheduled to play on Thursday night this season.

The last time the Chargers didn't play on Thursday Night Football was in 2017 when they faced Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. And the last time the Bolts didn't play on Thursday at all was 2009.

7. All the air miles

The Bolts will be in the air quite often this season.

In fact, the team is slated to travel the most miles of any NFL team this season (26,803).

It'll be a year of long road trips as the Chargers will also travel an NFL-high 36 time zone changes.

8. Rare trips to SoFi Stadium

Three of the Chargers home games will have never happened before at SoFi Stadium.

The Chargers host the Saints, Bengals and Buccaneers for the first time since the stadium opened in 2020.

While the Bolts have played them all since 2020, it will be their first time to do so at home in front of Chargers fans.

9. Chiefs in primetime

It's no secret that when the Chargers and Chiefs match up, it attracts a lot of eyes.

The pair have played in six primetime games against one another since the 2017 season, including two in 2022.

And there's another one coming this year during Week 14, when the Bolts travel to Arrowhead on Sunday Night Football.

10. Rare trip to Carolina

One of the Charger road trips this year is to a place they have very little history at.

The Bolts will be playing in Carolina for just the fourth time in franchise history and the first time since 2016.

The Panthers are the team the Chargers have faced off against the least, having gone against them just seven times in total.
