The LA Rams and LA Chargers will meet up in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL preseason at SoFi Stadium. Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET and the game will air on both ABC7 and CBS 2 in Los Angeles. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Rams roster and the Chargers roster.

The reigning Super Bowl champion Rams are running it back this season after finalizing contract extensions with coach Sean McVay, Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, and Aaron Donald. The Rams also bolstered their roster by adding Allen Robinson and Bobby Wagner. The Chargers have also loaded up in the tightly contested AFC West. After just missing the postseason with a 9-8 record in 2021, Los Angeles loaded up on defense by signing cornerback J.C. Jackson and trading for pass rusher Khalil Mack.

The Chargers are a 3.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -165 on the moneyline. The Rams are a +140 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 30 with the over/under juiced to -110.
