We've known the 2018 opponents for the San Francisco 49ers since December 17, 2017. What we don't know are the dates and times for each matchup. That will change when the NFL officially announces the complete 2018 schedule on Thursday, April 19 at 5 p.m. PT.


NFL Network will once again air a schedule release show at that time.

"The special will be hosted by Scott Hanson and feature NFL Network analysts Steve Mariucci, Kurt Warner and Maurice Jones-Drew," announced the NFL. "It'll break down the entire schedule, division by division, analyzing the top matchups and prime-time games, including the 18-game Thursday Night Football schedule on FOX and NFL Network."

San Francisco will face each of the teams within its division twice and play each member of the NFC North and AFC West. Because they finished last in the NFC West last year, they will also face the last-place teams from the NFC South and NFC East.

What is nice about this year's opponents is that all but one of the East Coast teams on the schedule will travel to Levi's Stadium to face the 49ers. San Francisco will go to the Eastern time zone just once during the regular season for a road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Below are the teams the 49ers are slated to play during the upcoming season.

Home Games


Chicago Bears
Denver Broncos
Detroit Lions
New York Giants
Oakland Raiders
Arizona Cardinals
Los Angeles Rams
Seattle Seahawks

Away Games


Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
Los Angeles Chargers
Minnesota Vikings
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Arizona Cardinals
Los Angeles Rams
Seattle Seahawks

ESPN insider Adam Schefter recently shared his insights on the situation surrounding San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk during an appearance on the network's "NFL Live" show. Schefter clarified that while Aiyuk would like to remain with the 49ers, his priority is securing a contract that reflects his value, regardless of the team. When questioned about Aiyuk's desire to stay with the team that selected him in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Schefter responded, "Well, I think his desire to get paid is greater than his desire to stay in San Francisco, wherever that is. If the 49ers want to pay him, I'm sure he'd love to stay in San Francisco. If another team would like to pay him, I'm sure he'd like to go

Taylor Swift, the Kansas City Chiefs, and a Super Bowl overtime matchup. If the NFL is scripted, the league came up with a good one this past season—unless you're a San Francisco 49ers fan. During his inaugural youth football camp at Levi's Stadium this past weekend, 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy faced a candid inquiry from one young participant: Is the NFL scripted? "No, the NFL is not scripted," a smiling Purdy responded. However, the quarterback added, "Good

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than a week away, ESPN contributors have highlighted some prospects who have seen their draft stock rise throughout the evaluation process. Jordan Reid and Matt Miller pinpointed players who could hear their names called at the end of the first round. Interestingly, both of the prospects identified by Reid and Miller play in the trenches but on different sides of the ball. The San Francisco 49ers are widely expected to draft an offensive lineman with their first selection—No. 31 overall. The team mostly ignored the group in free agency. However, it wouldn't surprise many people if the

If the San Francisco 49ers decide to trade wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, it's likely to occur within the next four days—before or during Day 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft. Despite some unconfirmed rumors, there has been no concrete indication that a trade is imminent. Previously, the 49ers had expressed a desire to retain Aiyuk for the foreseeable future. Aiyuk's agent, Ryan Williams, has swiftly refuted rumors, including one alleging that the receiver had requested a trade, claiming that the Pittsburgh Steelers were "aggressively pursuing" the receiver. While no official trade request
