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

Carlos Dunlap's hand may have been all that stopped the San Francisco 49ers from scoring on their final play during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »



49ers' Nick Bosa, Kyle Juszczyk among top vote-getters for Pro Bowl

Voting for the upcoming Pro Bowl has been underway for a while now. The NFL released some stats on the leading vote-getters so far. Two San Francisco 49ers currently lead their respective positions. Kyle Juszczyk leads all fullbacks with 70,362 fan votes. Nick Bosa leads NFC defensive ends with 68,143 votes. Juszczyk, a nine-year veteran, has been named to the last five Pro Bowls, with the first coming in 2016. He is widely considered to be the best fullback in the NFL. Although, his 62.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade this season is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign. Bosa is proving to be even more dominant than he was in his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. He has already surpassed his rookie sack total of nine with a



John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we
