The NFL will unveil the league’s complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 pm PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I’ve created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches.

As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West.

NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on Thursday, September 8, culminating with Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Below are the dates and times (if known) for 49ers games during the upcoming season and who reported each matchup. Once the full schedule is released, I will post it separately.

49ers’ 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That’s when we’ll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we’ve known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won’t be an easy road. San Francisco’s upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team’s schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn’t help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals – This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers – Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

Good second-round options for the 49ers in 2022 NFL Draft

With the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft now in the books, the picture begins to get a bit clearer on who the 49ers may select with their second-round pick. The 49ers hold the 61st pick in the second-round of the draft and what position they draft for is unknown, however this draft class seems to be deep at the right positions for San Francisco. Many mock drafts have the 49ers selecting a defensive back or possibly an EDGE, but either way the 49ers will have plenty of solid players to choose from. S Jalen Pitre (Baylor): It’s unlikely that Pitre is still there this deep in the second-round but if he slips to the 49ers they should pounce. Pitre would bring a versatility the 49ers secondary desperately needs, with Charvarius Ward now on the outside with
