The San Francisco 49ers will be playing at the brand new Levi’s Stadium in 2014, starting by hosting the Chicago Bears at the home opener in Week 2. All the pieces of the offense are in place, and the 49ers still boast one of the best defenses in the NFL.

It’s no secret that the 49ers play in a very competitive division against teams with excellent defenses. But the 49ers themselves are a formidable foe to compete against, and they should have a good chance of returning to the playoffs with their 2014 schedule. Take a look below.

Week 1: @ Dallas Cowboys, Sunday, Sept. 7 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 2: vs. Chicago Bears, Sunday, Sept. 14 at 5:30 p.m. PST
Week 3: @ Arizona Cardinals, Sunday, Sept. 21 at 1:05 p.m. PST
Week 4: vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Sunday, Sept. 28 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 5: vs. Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, Oct. 5 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 6: @ St. Louis Rams, Monday, Oct. 13 at 5:30 p.m. PST
Week 7: @ Denver Broncos, Sunday, Oct. 19 at 5:30 p.m. PST
Week 8: BYE
Week 9: vs. St. Louis Rams, Sunday, Nov. 2 at 1:05 p.m. PST

Week 11: @ New York Giants, Sunday, Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. PST
Week 12: vs. Washington Redskins, Sunday, Nov. 23 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 13: vs. Seattle Seahawks, Thursday, Nov. 27 at 5:30 p.m. PST (Thanksgiving)
Week 14: @ Oakland Raiders, Sunday, Dec. 7 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 15: @ Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Dec. 14 at 1:25 p.m. PST
Week 16: vs San Diego Chargers, Saturday, Dec. 20 at 1:30 p.m. PST
Week 17: vs Arizona Cardinals, Sunday, Dec. 28 at 1:25 p.m. PST

Hopefully, there will also be a handful of games in January, and there may even be a very important game in early February at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.

The 49ers will face the AFC West and the NFC East this year, which should provide quite a few interesting meetings. San Francisco will play last year’s Super Bowl runner-up at Denver in October and a high-powered Saints offense in New Orleans in November. While the road to the playoffs won’t be easy, a playoff appearance may come down to two crucial division showdowns against in the reigning champions in Week 13 and again in Week 15.

One thing is certain. San Francisco can’t allow themselves to start off the season slow with multiple losses like their 1-2 record after Week 3 of the 2013 season. The 49ers will face multiple teams who were the champions of their respective divisions and conferences last year. The team has a tough road ahead in 2014, but the talent is there. The 49ers just need to make sure that they give 100 percent every week and not risk their playoff hopes with losses they can’t afford.
