After years of talk, the move finally happened this past off-season.
Having been ingrained in the San Diego community dating back to the 1960s, the Chargers decided the time was right for a move up north. In doing so, they became the Los Angeles Chargers, something that many people in San Diego will never forget.
Now settled in their new confines (albeit temporary), the Chargers take to the field this coming Monday evening in Denver, facing one of their oldest AFL rivals in the Broncos. Needless to say, the Chargers hope the talk is about the game and not about their ex-San Diego tenant status.
When they do hit the field in the Mile High City for the second game of an NFL doubleheader, Los Angeles will be looking to show that last season’s 5-11 record and all of the off-the-field distractions are a thing of the past.
Will New A Beginning Mean Better Results?
Given how competitive the AFC West tends to be, it should come as no surprise that the Chargers will have their hands full this season, regardless of which city they call home.
