L.A. Rams to Open Their NFL Season on Sunday Night Football on Sept. 12

INGLEWOOD (CNS) - The Los Angeles Rams will open their 2021 NFL regular season on Sunday, Sept. 12 on NBC's Sunday Night Football -- hosting the Chicago Bears in the first game at SoFi Stadium that fans will be allowed to attend, the team announced today.

The NFL on Wednesday morning announced its league-wide Week 1 schedule. The league will release its full 2021 slate of games at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The L.A. Chargers will open on the road on Sept. 12, visiting the Washington Football Team for a 10 a.m. PT start.

The Rams and Chargers both played the 2020 season at the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, but performed before 70,000-plus empty seats because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Rams-Bears matchup will kick off at 5:20 p.m. on Sept. 12.

This will be the second straight season the Rams will open their season at home on Sunday Night Football. Last season, they opened SoFi Stadium with a 20-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Last season, the Rams also beat the Bears 24-10 in a Week 7 Monday Night Football matchup on their way to a 10-6 record.

The Chargers finished the 2020 season with a 7-9 record.
