SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Before the San Francisco 49ers begin their new era in Santa Clara, the team will open the 2014 season on the road against a familiar foe.
The ‘Niners will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in the season opener then are scheduled to host the Chicago Bears in the brand new Levi’s Stadium in a Sunday night game on Sept. 14.
In addition to the Bears, the team will host divisional games against the Arizona Cardinals (Sept. 21), St. Louis Rams (Nov. 2).
A national spotlight will shine over Levi’s Stadium on Thanksgiving night when the team hosts rivals and 2014 Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahwaks on Nov. 27.
Rounding out the eight home games that the 49ers will host at the new stadium are the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins, San Diego Chargers.
The 49ers home opponents have compiled a 32-32 road record last season. The team was 6-2 last season including a dramatic 19-17 win over the Seahawks.
Jim Harbaugh’s squad has the league’s fourth toughest schedule and will be facing a difficult road back to the playoffs with trips to 2014 AFC Champion Denver Broncos, New Orleans, and New York.
