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

By David Bonilla

It looks like it might be Houston or bust for DeMeco Ryans. One day after the San Francisco 49ers' heartbreaking loss in the NFC Championship Game, the defensive coordinator informed the Denver Broncos that he was no longer interested in their head coaching job. Ryans has emerged as the favorite for the Texans' heading coaching job. Ryans started his NFL career in Houston, playing linebacker there during his first six NFL seasons. "He is considered to be the favorite," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "The Denver Broncos, who also had significant interest in DeMeco Ryans after interviewing him, they have received indication that his attention is headed elsewhere. Houston, of course, where he played. A

The end of the 2022 season brings a whole new set of questions for the San Francisco 49ers -- questions that will start to get answered in the weeks and months ahead after looming large in the locker room following their NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The 49ers have a number of players slated for free agency and will have to make some tough decisions on who will stay and who will go.

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
