The San Francisco 49ers were a possession away from reaching the Super Bowl last season. Needless to say, the team has high hopes as Week 1 approaches. Here are five 49ers games that are most worthy of your attention because they will shape the season for the men in red and gold.

The Bears are a trendy Super Bowl pick, and with good reason. The 49ers will have their hands full defending the two-headed receiving monster of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Jim Harbaugh will expect nothing short of a victory here, but it won’t come easily.

4. Week 7 @ Denver Broncos

After suffering a painful 34-0 loss to the Broncos in the second week of preseason, you can bet that the 49ers will be looking to exact some revenge in this game. Remember, these teams almost met in Super Bowl XLVIII and could very well encounter each other this upcoming February.

3. Week 10 @ New Orleans Saints

This matchup of golden helmets will have far-reaching effects in the NFC playoff picture, as both the 49ers and Saints stand to be top contenders in their respective divisions. It’s hard to think of a quarterback duel as exciting as Colin Kaepernick in his rising stardom against future Hall of Famer Drew Brees.

2. Week 13 vs. Seattle Seahawks

What could be better than the 49ers and Seahawks facing off on Thanksgiving Day? The NFL’s best rivalry will finally be renewed after three months of regular season play. But no one is as ready for this game as 49ers’ returners from 2013 who felt the pain of the NFC Championship game loss.

A mere two weeks after meeting for the first time in 2014, these two powerhouses will see each other again, this time in the Seahawks’ nest. The winner of this game will have the inside track on the NFC West title and likely a top-two seed in the conference.
