The Chargers play three out of four games at home to start the season, with that first road game being an early-season matchup against the Patriots in week two. Before their week 6 bye, they also play on the road in Denver.

Following their bye week the Chargers face three consecutive 2010 playoff teams in the Jets, Chiefs, and the defending Super Bowl Champion Packers.

The first half of the season could very well pose the usual challenges for the slow-starting Chargers, with a total of five games against playoff teams (two against the Chiefs) from last year. Luckily the last half of the season looks to be a little easier for the Bolts, who, outside of Baltimore and Chicago, face six other teams with a combined 2010 winning percentage of .394.

If the Chargers stay true to form, we might expect some early-season struggles followed by another late-season winning-streak. Then again, perhaps this unusual offseason will lead to an atypical season for the Chargers...for better, or possibly for worse.

With the release of the Chargers' 2011 schedule, what are your early predictions for the Chargers place in the AFC West this year? Do you foresee another 2-3 start? Will the Chargers continue their late-season heroics, or continue to slide? Share your thoughts below!
