The San Diego Chargers will kick off Week 1 of the regular season in the desert on Monday Night Football against an Arizona Cardinals team that is picking up steam heading into 2014.

After finishing 10-6 a year ago under head coach Bruce Arians, the Cardinals are poised for a breakout year and may be knocking on the door for a spot in the playoffs come December. But before the Cardinals can get a premature jump on their postseason plans, they'll need to meet their first test of the season in a Chargers squad that is also on the rise.

San Diego ended a four-year playoff drought in 2013 under head coach Mike McCoy, and the return of Philip Rivers to elite form resulted in the Chargers having one of the league's top offenses. This time around, however, the competition only gets stiffer as San Diego ventures into the NFC West.

In what should be a telling night of action from two up-and-coming teams, expect to see one emerge and stake their claim as a contender in 2014.
