Inside the Schedule

The 49ers' quest for a repeat Super Bowl appearance faces an instant challenge with matchups against 2012 playoff teams in four of the first five weeks. Midseason is the soft underbelly of the schedule with five non-playoff teams sandwiching a Week 9 bye. The December showdowns with the Seahawks and Falcons will go a long way in determining NFC supremacy entering the postseason.

Week 16 vs. Falcons
Postseason home-field advantage could be on the line in the rematch of the 49ers' comeback victory in the NFC Championship Game. An argument can be made that Atlanta would have held on for the victory if they had Steven Jackson -- rather than a washed-up Michael Turner -- to salt away an early 17-0 lead.
