How the NFL Makes the 49ers Schedule

The San Francisco 49ers regular season schedule consists of 16 games and 1 bye week. Eight games are hosted in their home stadium and the other eight are played on the road.

Six of the games are NFC West divisional matchups where they play the Seattle Seahawks, the Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals twice. And the remaining ten games are against another NFC division, an AFC division and 2 other NFC opponents (based on last year's standings).
