A prime-time NBC audience will see the first regular-season game for the San Francisco 49ers at new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and now we know when that will be and who the opponent is.
The NFL released the 2014 regular-season schedule on Wednesday and the 49ers will host the Chicago Bears on NBC’s “Football Night In America” on Sunday, Sept. 14, with kickoff set for 5:30 p.m.
The 49ers open the season at Dallas at 1:25 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, Sept. 7.
For the second straight season, the 49ers will visit St. Louis on a Monday night, traveling to face the Rams in Week 6 on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” on Oct. 13.
That will be the first of two consecutive prime-time games for the 49ers, who visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 19.
As of now, San Francisco is scheduled to appear in prime time four times, the last being Thanksgiving night—the first Thanksgiving home game in 49ers history—on NBC against bitter NFC West rival Seattle at Levi’s Stadium on Nov. 27 at 5:30 p.m.
