The Chargers roll into 2014 fresh off a playoff appearance last season, but must play seven games against playoff teams – four alone in the AFC West - in what is one of the toughest schedules in the NFL. Based off the 2013 results, the combined winning percentage for the Chargers’ opponents is .563, tied for the fourth most difficult schedule in the NFL.
All AFC West teams are matched against the AFC East and NFC West. As the third-place team in the AFC West, the Chargers draw games against the third-place team from the AFC South and AFC North (Jacksonville and Baltimore).
Here’s the breakdown of the home and away opponents for next season:
Home: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks
Away: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers
