The 2012 San Diego Chargers home schedule begins with two great games in the NFL preseason. During the first two weeks, San Diego will host the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys, giving fans a great look at two potential NFC playoff teams. Both games will also serve as barometers for where the current Chargers roster stands.
The first regular season home game is during Week 2 for the Chargers, when the team hosts the Tennessee Titans. It is one of many very winnable home games that the Chargers get in the 2012 NFL schedule, possibly giving the team a good chance to make it back to the postseason. Despite finishing the 2011 season at 8-8, the Chargers lost out on tiebreakers to the Denver Broncos when it came to winning the AFC West.
Last season the Chargers were 5-3 at home and if the team can continue that success it has a great chance at keeping pace with the Broncos and new quarterback Peyton Manning. Those teams will face off in Monday night football this season during a Week 6 Chargers home game.
