The wait is finally close to being over.

The Chargers and the 31 other teams in the league will know when and where they’re playing in the 2022 season on Thursday at 5 p.m. PT.

We know who the Bolts will be playing, but how will they fare against their opponents?

Based on the 2021 win percentages of 2022 opponents, Los Angeles has the 10th-hardest schedule this season. Their upcoming opponents posted a combined 150-139 (.519) record last season.

The Chiefs (.533) and Raiders (.528) both have tougher schedules than the Chargers, while the Broncos have the 15th-most challenging schedule (.509).

However, offseason acquisitions made by Los Angeles and their opponents will certainly impact this.
