The 49ers schedule was released yesterday and the 49ers have returned to their glory days with five primetime matchups. We will breakdown the schedule and leave you with our prediction on the season.
Week 1: at Packers (Loss)
Week 2: vs Lions (Win)
Week 3: at Vikings (Win)
Week 4: at Jets (Win)
The 49ers start out of the gate with a big time matchup against the Packers. The Packers are good at home and good at home on opening weekend. The 49ers have lost eight straight to the Packers dating back to 1998 and hate to say it, but it will be 9 after opening day. The 49ers host the Lions on Sunday night and win the Handshake Bowl. The Lions have lost 11 straight at Candlestick since 1975. The next two weeks the 49ers have road games, look for the 49ers to spend that time in Youngstown, Ohio again and like last season these two road games will be hard fought wins. The road games against the Packers and Jets come at a good time as the weather isn’t that cold yet.
Week 5: vs Bills (Win)
