The San Francisco 49ers have a difficult 2020 schedule. But there are three games they should easily win.

For the first time in a long time, it’s exciting to look at the San Francisco 49ers schedule for next season.

After a trip to the Super Bowl, the 49ers were gifted with only the fourth-hardest schedule of the year. Why not challenge the team who had one of the best offseasons in the league?

You’ve already heard by now the Niners will play in five prime-time games. One on the road and four at home. Their first game under the lights is against the always interesting Philadelphia Eagles at Levi’s Stadium.

By far, their toughest stretch is from Week 7-10, with a bye set for Week 11. The 49ers will face the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints. During the 2019 season, these four teams finished with a combined 49-15 record.

It’s good to remember, the 49ers defeated Seattle and Green Bay twice and the Saints once last year. The last time they took down the Patriots was back in 2012.

However, records are behind us now.

Looking ahead to 2020, the Niners will face some interesting teams. They’ll take on both New York teams early on while welcoming the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills to Northern California. Just before Christmas, the 49ers will renew a rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys.

Of the aforementioned teams, there will be three easy wins for the 49ers. Two wins will come against teams from New York, while the other will be against the team from the east coast.
