After the conclusion of the 2014 season, we now know which teams the San Francisco 49ers will face with the franchise's next head coach.

Jim Tomsula will lead the 49ers into a 16-game schedule against teams from the NFC West, NFC North and AFC North. In addition, we know by way of the NFL's rotating schedule which teams from the NFC South and NFC East that San Francisco will face home and away.

Below, you'll find a list of the home and away opponents for 2015 along with some thoughts on the 49ers slate of home and away games.

The aforementioned games will likely be announced in late April. But until we know the full details, here are a few schedule thoughts based on what we can see on paper.

Best home game:

Baltimore Ravens. A rematch of Super Bowl XLVII. Need we say more?

Best road game:Seattle Seahawks. The is always the most physical game of the year. Plus, the 49ers haven't won in the Pacific Northwest since '11.

Game we'd like to see the schedule makers create:San Francisco 49ers at the Pittsburgh Steelers on "Monday Night Football." The lights will surely stay on this time around.

Don't sleep on this game:

Could go many directions here, but we'll go with the Cincinnati Bengals matchup at home. This one figures to be a major challenge against a playoff-caliber club that has lost two Super Bowls at the hands of San Francisco.

Game of the year:

Green Bay Packers at home. There's something about Colin Kaepernick against the Packers. He's dominated them in the regular season and in the playoffs. Don't think Aaron Rodgers and the Pack haven't lost sight of that.
