2018 San Francisco 49ers Schedule Revealed

Apr 19, 2018 at 2:20 PM--

San Francisco 49ers fans can finally begin making their 2018 football plans. The full schedule is now known thanks to Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group. The complete 2018 NFL schedule will become official when it is announced by the league tonight at 5:00 p.m. PT.

San Francisco will participate in five prime-time games, including back-to-back matchups against the Oakland Raiders and New York Giants during Weeks 9 and 10.

All but one of the East Coast teams on the 49ers' schedule will have to travel to Levi's Stadium. San Francisco will go to the Eastern time zone just once during the regular season for a road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 49ers will also face five teams with new head coaches, one of which they will play twice. The Arizona Cardinals hired Steve Wilks, Jon Gruden joined the Raiders, Matt Nagy signed on with the Chicago Bears, the Giants snagged Pat Shurmur, and Matt Patricia left the New England Patriots for the Detroit Lions. The 49ers will have a significant home-field advantage in those six games with just one – a road trip to play one of the two games against the Cardinals – being away from the comforts of Levi's Stadium.

Of the eight teams visiting Levi's Stadium in 2018, only one made the playoffs last season – the defending NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. They face three playoff teams, including the Rams, on the road.

Below is the complete 2018 49ers schedule, which you can also find on our official schedule page.

* Update: Kickoff time for the Bears game, which Inman initially reported as 5:15 p.m., has been updated per a report by Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. Other minor updates have been made as well.

49ers insider believes team may prefer WR Brandon Aiyuk play on fifth-year option

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers don't always do things like other NFL teams do. But they are consistent, for the most part. Seemingly every offseason, especially in recent years, a star player has wanted a new contract. From TE George Kittle and LB Fred Warner to WR Deebo Samuel and Edge Nick Bosa, the 49ers have given new contracts, but they have waited until late July-early August (and in Bosa's case—September) to do so, much to the chagrin of those players, who wanted their new deal sooner rather than later. It may not have happened as soon as the players wanted it to, but it has happened. Kittle's contract talks reportedly weren't as smooth as he might have hoped, Samuel famously scrubbed his social media accounts of all things 49ers, and Bosa didn't sign until a few days

Ctrl+Z: 4 key decisions 49ers might "undo" if given the chance

No one is perfect. Each of us makes mistakes. I do for sure. Peruse your way through the many articles I've written for 49ers Webzone and you'll see plenty of mistakes. Whether it's a typo or some prediction I offered that didn't go as I had thought. The San Francisco 49ers are no different. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made their share of mistakes. Fortunately for all of us, they hit on more than they miss. But I wonder if we were able to catch them in a moment of complete transparency if they might admit to wanting to hit the Ctrl+Z and "undo" some moves. I doubt they will admit to such mistakes anytime soon, but fear not—I'm here to do it for them. Yes, I could write on the best decisions
