The Washington Football Team and the Los Angeles Chargers will face off at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at FedEx Field to kick off their 2021 seasons. Washington is coming off of a 7-9 season with hopes of advancing further than the first round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23. On the other hand, Los Angeles missed the playoffs altogether last season and is looking forward to a clean start.

The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
