There is going to be a whole slew of brand-new Monday night football match ups as the 2015 and 2016 NFL season gets underway. The San Francisco 49ers schedule is now out and you can see when all of their games are going to be played. Below you can see a list of every game, and also purchase tickets if you want to.
How are things shaping up for the 49ers this year?
Just like every team in the league, this San Francisco squad has no shortage of tough matchups. They’re very first game of the season is no easy task. They will be facing off against the Minnesota Vikings on September 14. They will also be playing a rematch from their previous Super Bowl game against the Baltimore Ravens in week six. They will then be in for quite a game against the Seattle Seahawks in week seven. A few games from the San Francisco 49ers schedule will also be taking place during Sunday night football on NBC. These will be the games against the New York Giants in week five, and their week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Interestingly the all-time record of games between the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco is completely even. Both teams currently have 22 wins over the other. In recent times however the Vikings have been getting the better of the 49ers. In their last three matches the Vikings came out on top. You have to go back to the year 2006 to find our Niners coming out on top over the Minnesota squad. This is certainly no easy matchup, especially for their first game of the season. They are facing a tough team who has been getting the better of them in their recent matchups. Hopefully the Niners can break their losing streak and prevail during this week one game.
Multiple Tough Match-ups
The rest of their games are certainly no fairytale, they’ll be facing plenty of game opponents take for instance their week five game which pits them against the New York Giants. During this MetLife Stadium game, San Francisco will be trying to repeat last year’s victory and make it two in a row going into the 2015 and 2016 season. This is one of the games that is going to take place during Sunday night football on NBC. Just like with the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Giants in the Niners are currently tied, both having 19 wins.
Final interesting match that we are going to take a look at for this 2015 49ers schedule will be verse the Seattle Seahawks which is happening during Thursday night football, this is the second Thursday night football game two years in a row that they are going to be playing against each other. They just took quite a devastating loss during the 2014 season, as they were trounced 19-3 against one of their biggest rivals in the Seahawks. 2014 was actually the first year that they lost versus the Seahawks in over six years. Look for this San Francisco squad to do their best to avenge this defeat in the upcoming season.
