The Chargers began their 2007 campaign at home as they matched up their offensive firepower against the Chicago Bears and their rock-hard defense. In this defensive slugfest, the Bears would hold RB LaDainian Tomlinson (last year's league MVP) to just 12 yards rushing on 11 attempts, while getting a 27-yard field goal by kicker Robbie Gould in the second quarter. This game would also mark the first time since 2001 that the Chargers were shut out in the first half. In the third quarter, San Diego started to bounce back as Tomlinson threw his 7th career touchdown pass to TE Antonio Gates from 17 yards out. In the fourth, LT delivered the final blow with getting a 7-yard TD run.

With the win, the Chargers began their season at 1–0.

    [When asked: “If women voted, would they not have to sit on juries?”:] Many women would be glad of a chance to sit on anything. There are women who stand up and wash six days in the week at 75 cents a day who would like to take a vacation and sit on a jury at $1.50.
