The Washington Football Team opens the 2021 NFL season on Sunday when the Los Angeles Chargers come to FedEx Field.
The Chargers enter the 2021 season with a new head coach in Brandon Staley. Staley, 38, quickly rose up the NFL coaching ranks after spending the 2020 season as the defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Rams.
He helped lead the Rams to a No. 1 ranking in total defense and was offered the head-coaching job with the Chargers after one season as a coordinator. He didn’t begin his NFL coaching career until 2017.
Staley inherits a talented team with the Chargers, who have a young franchise quarterback in place.
Now, here are five Chargers to watch in Sunday’s Week 1 contest.
