The NFL released part of its preseason schedule on Thursday. Teams know who and where they'll be playing, but are still hashing out when most of the games will kick off.
The Chargers know they'll open up the exhibition schedule at home against the Seahawks, but the exact date and time are TBD.
Their second game is all ready. The Bolts play the Bears in Chicago on Thursday, August 15, at 5:00 San Diego time. We know that one because it's the national TV game on ESPN.
After that it's a trip to Arizona to face the Cardinals, and a final home game against the NFC Champion 49ers. It'll be the 42nd time San Diego and San Francisco have met in the preseason.
The first NFL exhibition of the year will be the annual Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, August 4. You can see that game on NBC 7 at 5:00.
