San Francisco 49ers’ 2022 opponents finalized

Jan 5, 2022 at 2:45 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers could finish the 2021 season with 10 wins and end up being No. 3 in the division standings. That second part is a certainty with the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals fighting for the NFC West title.

The Niners remain in the playoff hunt and will need to beat the Rams on Sunday to clinch a playoff berth. A loss could mean they watch the postseason from home.

Finishing third in the division this season means some good news for next season. San Francisco might benefit from an easier schedule in 2022. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC West and AFC West.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle provided the following list of the 49ers' 2022 opponents.

HOME (9 games)
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Los Angeles Chargers
  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Miami Dolphins
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Washington Commanders

AWAY (8 games)
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Chicago Bears
  • Denver Broncos

  • Seattle Seahawks

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

The NFL revealed its complete 272-game 2022 regular-season schedule on Thursday at 5:00 p.m. PT. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on Thursday, September 8, culminating with Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The San Francisco 49ers open their season on the road against the Chicago Bears. Their first home game comes during Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners' bye is during Week 9. They are currently scheduled to participate in five prime-time matchups this year. San Francisco's opponents combined for a 154-135 record last season. The .533 winning percentage by opponents makes the 49ers' schedule tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the fifth toughest in the NFL, based on last year's results, and



Why PFF believes Trey Lance is in a good situation with 49ers in 2022

Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. Those are the former first-round quarterbacks set to enter their second NFL seasons. Lawrence and Jones started all 17 games in 2021. Wilson started 13, and Fields started 10. Lance earned just two starts. However, that doesn't mean the soon-to-be 22-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback isn't set up for success. Analyst Sam Monson ranked the current team situations for the NFL's top second-year quarterbacks in 2022. Zach Wilson topped the list after the New York Jets' offseason efforts to build around their own 22-year-old quarterback. Right behind him, though, is Lance, who comes in at No. 2. That makes sense. After all, he's on a team that has been to the NFC title game twice in the past three



Breaking down the 49ers' Day 2 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft

After a countless number of drafts where the 49ers built their roster via the first round, San Francisco dove into uncharted waters last weekend, as they had their first selection at No. 61 overall, since they traded up for their franchise quarterback in Trey Lance last offseason, sending their last year's first-rounder, this year's first-rounder, and next year's first-rounder as a part of the package. However, that doesn't mean the 49ers weren't productive in the draft, as they selected nine players in an extremely deep draft class, where some players that were expected to go in the middle rounds fell out of the draft altogether. Here's an breakdown of the 49ers Day 2 draft
