49ers to Play Four Primetime Games in 2014

Posted Apr 23, 2014

San Francisco’s bright-light games begin on Sept. 14 in the team’s Week 2 home opener on “Sunday Night Football” against the Chicago Bears.


The San Francisco 49ers will compete in at least four primetime games in 2014.

The 49ers will host two of those night games at the team’s new home, Levi’s® Stadium, and travel on the road for the other two national-TV tilts.

There could also be more marquee games by way of the NFL’s flex schedule, which is now in play as early as Week 5 of the regular season, according to an NFL.com report.

San Francisco’s bright-light games begin on Sept. 14 in the team’s Week 2 home opener on “Sunday Night Football” against the Chicago Bears.

The 49ers lone appearance on “Monday Night Football” will be a Week 6 NFC West matchup against the St. Louis Rams.

San Francisco returns to primetime the following week, on Oct. 19, for a “Sunday Night Football” contest against Peyton Manning and the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos.

The 49ers close out primetime action in arguably the biggest game of the season, a Thanksgiving night home matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers have never hosted a game on the holiday.

Dating back to 1970, San Francisco has a 67-33 record in primetime games. The 49ers also have a 40-15 record at home in such contests.

San Francisco is 10-3 in primetime under Jim Harbaugh. The club produced a 4-1 record in night games last season.

Which primetime game do you think is the biggest game of 2014?
