49ers 2010 Opponents - Unofficial Version

We've had questions about the 49ers opponents in 2010 popping up in a variety of threads.  We won't know the official list of opponents until this coming weekend's games are complete, but for now, here's an unofficial list.  The NFL does not provide this information to the public, or if they do, it's not particularly easy to find.  So, I've used a variety of sources (linked below) that have provided the information and confirmed each other:

49ers Home Opponents
Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys/Philadelphia Eagles*

49ers Road Opponents
Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Green Bay Packers

The last opponent for home and road is the NFC East and NFC North team that finishes in the same position in the standings as the 49ers.  The 49ers have locked in second place with the Seahawks loss on Sunday.  The Packers are locked in at #2 in the NFC North.  In the NFC East, the Eagles hold a one-game lead over the Cowboys and they'll be facing each other this Sunday.  The Cowboys won the first game, so if they beat Philly on Sunday, the 49ers would get the Eagles at home.

Once we have an official home/road list, I'll provide my own initial, quick predictions (as useless as they are in January).  Based on a quick look at the schedule, it's certainly a mixed bag, as always.  Packers, Chargers, and Falcons on the road will be tough.  Getting the Saints and Cowboys/Eagles at home is certainly better than a kick in the pants.
