Game Day: San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers

Sep 3, 2015 at 12:00 AM--


Tonight, the San Francisco 49ers (1-2) will host the San Diego Chargers (2-1) at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The Chargers are coming off of a 16-15 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers are coming off of a 19-12 loss against the Denver Broncos.


The 49ers finish the 2015 preseason against their second straight AFC West opponent as they host the Chargers. The 49ers and Chargers have met every year in preseason since 1987 with the 49ers having won the last five matchups.

Against the Broncos, the 49ers rushed for 145 yards. Players like RB Reggie Bush and RB Kendall Hunter saw their first preseason action of the season. Bush ripped off a 21-yard run in his only attempt while QB Colin Kaepernick added 53 himself.

The first-team unit should not see much action against the Chargers. The final preseason game is mostly for roster evaluation as teams are required to cut their squads down to 53 players by 1 PM on Saturday. Tonight will be a good opportunity for players to impress the 49ers coaches as well as coaches around the league.

The good news for fans outside of the Bay Area is that NFL Network has picked up the game and will broadcast it live, giving many fans their first opportunity this season to see the team on TV.

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie
May 9

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



49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



Frank Gore has this high praise for 49ers WR Deebo Samuel

By David Bonilla
May 7

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall
