CBS will be broadcasting Sunday’s NFL game between the Los Angeles Chargers and Washington Football Team. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET live from FedEx Field in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C.

For the first time in a long time, there’s reason to be excited about the Washington Football Team’s outlook. They enter the season returning one of the league’s better defenses, especially when it comes to terrorizing quarterbacks. Washington is hoping their quarterback problems are solved for a while too, thanks to above average journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick. He’s got a talented group of skill players around him. Running back Antonio Gibson is hoping to become the next great dual threat at the position. Wideout Terry McLaurin should finally thrive with a decent arm chucking it to him.

There’s plenty of reason for optimism for the Chargers too. Quarterback Justin Herbert won the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award last season, throwing for more than 4,300 yards and 31 touchdowns, a record for first-year signal callers. He’ll have his hands full against this defense. This game is a great chance to see two teams on their way up.
