The NFL is putting the Bolts in primetime for a key AFC clash.
The league announced this morning that the Chargers' Week 16 game against the Ravens has been flexed into the Saturday primetime slot. The NFL had four games to choose from but chose to put the match between two of the top teams in the AFC into the coveted Saturday night spot.
It's also worth noting that the game marks the first primetime game from ROKiT Field at StubHub Center as it will be broadcast coast-to-coast on NFL Network. Fans locally can watch the game on KABC. Kickoff on Dec. 22 is set for 5:20 p.m pacific time.
Flexing the game into the marquee primetime spot means NFL fans across the country will get to watch Philip Rivers and company on the national stage in consecutive weeks. Just one week prior, the Chargers visit the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday Night Football.
