The 2019 season was the Los Angeles Chargers' 50th in the National Football League (NFL), their 60th overall, their fourth in the Greater Los Angeles Area and their third under head coach Anthony Lynn. It also marked the Chargers' third and final season playing their home games at Dignity Health Sports Park, as the team moved into SoFi Stadium in Inglewood beginning with the 2020 season alongside the Los Angeles Rams. With a 2-5 record after Week 7, the Chargers failed to match or improve on their 12-4 record from 2018. Despite winning on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14, the Chargers were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention the same week as a result of the Pittsburgh Steelers beating the Arizona Cardinals 23-17. After a Week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Chargers suffered their first losing season since 2016, and their first as a Los Angeles-based team.

Uniform change

On April 16, the Chargers announced that the powder blue jerseys that served as the alternate colored jersey would become the primary home colored jerseys, replacing the navy blue jerseys that served as the primary home colored jersey since the team's 2007 uniform overhaul.[1][2] On September 2, the Chargers announced their uniform schedule for the 2019 season.[3] In addition to this uniform switch, the Chargers silently ditched their navy blue facemask for gold. However, the navy blue facemask was still used in games where the Chargers wore navy blue jerseys.
