The Dallas Cowboys will return to Santa Clara for the second time in as many years. Meanwhile, San Francisco will visit the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field for the third consecutive season.
And an interesting note will be whether or not head coach Chip Kelly is still with the Niners in 2017. If so, his return to Philadelphia to face off against the Eagles should be interesting, to say the least.
It will also be good to have a revisit with former Niners running back Frank Gore, if he’s still with the Indianapolis Colts next year.
San Francisco also has six NFC West games — the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals — with a home-and-away series for each.
The 2017 schedule is notably easier than the one San Francisco faced this season. CBS Sports’ John Breech listed the Niners’ 2016 opponents as boasting the toughest strength of schedule, along with the Atlanta Falcons, this year.
