The 49ers 2024 schedule has been released and includes six prime-time games that originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

After a Super Bowl appearance, the 49ers will certainly be back in the national spotlight during the 2024 NFL season.

That much was made clear on Wednesday, when the NFL announced the full 2024 regular season schedule.

The 49ers will appear twice apiece on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” and Prime Video’s “Thursday Night Football.” San Francisco’s six scheduled primetime games include Thursday matchups against NFC West opponents Seattle and Los Angeles.

The 49ers’ most notable road games are scheduled for consecutive Sundays, when they travel to Green Bay for a Nov. 24 game at Lambeau Field, followed by a trip to Buffalo on Dec. 1 for their second appearance on “Sunday Night Football” . .”

The back-to-back games in Green Bay and Buffalo may experience cold or inclement weather, especially the trip to Buffalo for the 8:20 PM ET kickoff.

The 49ers’ first Sunday night game will take place in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys at Levi’s Stadium on October 27. The teams also met last season on “Sunday Night Football” and the 49ers earned a 42-10 victory. .

As previously announced, the 49ers open the season on Monday evening, September 9 against Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets at Levi’s Stadium. San Francisco is scheduled to return to the Monday night stage in Week 17, December 30, to host the Detroit Lions.

The season-ending showdown is a repeat of the NFC Championship Game, also at Levi’s Stadium, in which the 49ers rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit for a 34-31 victory to advance to the Super Bowl.

The 49ers will get another chance at the Kansas City Chiefs this season in Week 7 of the regular season. The teams are scheduled to play Sunday, October 20 at Levi’s Stadium, with kickoff at 1:25 PM PT.

Kansas City wins three Super Bowl titles in five years, two of them against the 49ers. The Chiefs earned the Lombardi Trophy in February with a 25-22 overtime win over the 49ers in Las Vegas.

San Francisco has the advantage of a long week leading up to the game against Kansas City. The 49ers’ Week 6 game is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 10 at the Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers will play one more Thursday night game later in the season when the Los Angeles Rams come to Santa Clara on December 12.

The NFL has a flexible scheduling system that allows the league to change its Sunday night game up to two times from Weeks 5 through 10 and at any time for the remainder of the season. Monday evening matches may be changed from week 12 to week 17.

The 49ers’ final regular season game at the Arizona Cardinals, like all games in Week 18, will be played on Saturday, January 4 or Sunday, January 5. But with the 49ers playing Monday night against Detroit on Oct. 17, it seems unlikely they would be scheduled for a Saturday game.
