San Diego Chargers News - 2013 Chargers NFL Updates
There’s a new look to the San Diego Chargers this season. After failing to make the NFL Playoffs
for the third straight season last year, the Chargers have made plenty of personnel changes. New head coach Mike McCoy will lead the Bolts in 2013. Other notable changes this offseason to the Chargers roster include draft pick Manti Te’o. The Heisman Trophy candidate from Notre Dame has had an impressive minicamp and will look to contribute on the field during the regular season.
The Chargers schedule is packed with marquee games at Qualcomm Stadium
. The Dallas Cowboys
, Indianapolis Colts
, Denver Broncos
, and New York Giants
will all play in San Diego this season. But first, San Diego Chargers vs. Houston Texans will open the Chargers 2013 season on Monday Night Football. It is the first of two MNF games for the Chargers, with San Diego Chargers vs. Indianapolis Colts being the second. The latter has a more expensive ticket at $161 likely because of its NFL Playoff implications should the Houston Texans
and Denver Broncos win their divisions (as expected) and the interest around Dwight Freeney facing his former team. Another key game for the Chargers will be when McCoy’s former team comes to play. San Diego Chargers vs. Denver Broncos is the second most expensive game on the Chargers home schedule (behind San Diego Chargers vs. Dallas Cowboys). The cheapest Chargers game will be San Diego’s last regular season home game - San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
, averaging $126. The AFC West rivalry game is one of the 10 cheapest games in the NFL
All in all, Chargers tickets this year are averaging $178, down $13 in the last six weeks. Will veterans Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, and Malcom Floyd lead the Chargers to their first playoff appearance in four years? Will Corey Liuget prove he is the number one defensive lineman in the AFC West? Chargers fans will find out when the 2013 NFL season kicks off in September.
