49ers preseason schedule released; Includes Broncos, Packers

Apr 7, 2016 at 1:15 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced their 2016 preseason schedule today.

Week 1: vs Houston Texans
Week 2: at Denver Broncos
Week 3: vs Green Bay Packers
Week 4: at San Diego Chargers

These are the opponents that new head coach Chip Kelly will be facing as he works to get his team ready for the regular season. As usual, the 49ers will face the Chargers in preseason. They have faced San Diego in preseason every year since 1987.

The Denver Broncos are once again on the schedule. That's only worth noting because of the current situation surrounding 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Broncos' interest in acquiring him.

The two home games at Levi's Stadium will be against the Houston Texans and new quarterback Brock Osweiler during Week 1 and then two weeks later against the Green Bay Packers.

Dates and times have not yet been set, so fans will have to wait until later in the offseason to see exactly when the 49ers will face each opponent. All 49ers preseason games will be televised locally around the Bay Area on KPIX 5.

Below are the 49ers' 2016 regular season opponents. Dates and times for these games are generally released prior to the NFL Draft.

Home: Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams

Away: Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams

The San Francisco 49ers are excited about defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw's potential. While the rookie defender recorded just 1.5 sacks during his first NFL season, he showed flashes of being a powerful playmaker who could develop into an elite talent along the interior of the defensive line. "I think Kinlaw is going to be a dominant force in this league," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "I should say, 'is going to become,' because he's not there yet. He's shown flashes." Lynch knows a thing or two about impressive defensive-line play. He played behind a Hall of Famer in Warren Sapp. In fact, watching his former teammate cause

Brandon Aiyuk has John Lynch excited about the 49ers' future

By David Bonilla

By the end of the 2020 season, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looked a lot more comfortable in the San Francisco 49ers offense and appeared ready to leap to becoming a dangerous offensive weapon. From Week 7 through Week 15, Aiyuk averaged 94.7 receiving yards per game through six appearances. To put that into perspective, maintaining that average throughout a 16-game season would clock in at 1,514 receiving yards. Aiyuk has just scratched the surface. That has 49ers general manager John Lynch excited. The young receiver would have benefited more from a normal offseason leading into his rookie year. That didn't happen, and it may have contributed to a slower start. "Brandon Aiyuk, he's everything we thought he would be, and a little bit more,"
