Who and where will the San Francisco 49ers play in 2016? Take a look at the team's schedule next year.
The San Francisco 49ers already know who and where they’ll be playing next fall. But on Thursday evening, the team will find out the times and dates of those games.
The NFL is set to release the full 2016 regular season schedule at 5 p.m. PT. Stay tuned to 49ers.com for full coverage of the announcement.
San Francisco, as always, will play home and away contests versus their three NFC West rivals. There will, however, be a new wrinkle to the intra-division travel schedule. Instead of visiting St. Louis, the 49ers will travel down U.S. Route 101 to Los Angeles to battle the Rams.
Additionally, the 49ers will visit the Chicago Bears and host the Dallas Cowboys, both of whom also finished fourth in their respective divisions. The schedule rounds out with matchups against every team in the NFC South and AFC East.
Outside of traditional rivalries, matchups against Tom Brady, a Bay Area native, Cam Newton, the reigning MVP, and Jameis Winston, the first-overall pick in 2015, figure to be some of the most anticipated games of the season for San Francisco.
