NY Giants: Ranking their 2021 Opponents
Las Angeles Chargers
2020 Record: 7-9
2021 Venue: SoFi Stadium
The NY Giants will make their only trip to the West Coast against the LA Chargers this year.
Gone is the QB rivalry between both Eli Manning and Philip Rivers as they have retired in back-to-back offseasons. It will now be the 2019 #6 pick vs the 2020 #6 pick in Daniel Jones vs Justin Herbert.
Many Giants fans wanted Herbert in the 2019 draft before Herbert declared for one more year at Oregon. Now, both teams have their young QBs on their respective rookie deals and are looking to build a winning foundation around the two quarterbacks.
The Chargers have a lot of firepower in Ekeler, Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Jared Cook. Herbert set the NFL rookie record for most passing touchdowns in a season and will look to replicate his exceptional year one campaign.
Joey Bosa is a nightmare off the edge and Linval Joseph is a massive man on the interior of the d-line. Add in the pending return of Derwin James, the Chargers can be a sleeper team to watch out for in 2021.
