49ers preseason schedule 2013: Odds & Ends

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

We take a look at the 49ers four preseason games, and a few notable facts related to each game.

Fooch's Note: The 2013 NFL regular season schedule has now been released. Check out the 49ers complete schedule.

Yesterday afternoon, the NFL released the 2013 preseason schedule. The regular season schedule is due on April 16, so this preseason release helps whet the appetite. And of course, even the NFL does not take the preseason as seriously as the regular season. Whereas the regular season release features NFL Network (and ESPN) providing hour long breakdowns, the preseason release occurred on the NFL's Facebook page.

The 49ers preseason schedule breaks down as follows:

Looking at the last few years of scheduling, my guess is the Broncos game will be Friday August 9 and the Chiefs game would be Saturday August 17. The Broncos game could be on Saturday August 10, but the last two years have featured Friday preseason openers for the 49ers.

The 49ers public relations staff released a few notes on each of the four games.

BRONCOS

  • The game will mark the 35th preseason contest between the two teams, with Denver holding an 18-16 edge over San Francisco. During last year's preseason matchup in Denver, the 49ers defeated the Broncos 29-24.
  • This will mark Denver's first preseason trip to Candlestick Park since 2009 when the 49ers edged the Broncos 17-16.

CHIEFS

  • The 49ers and Chiefs have met nine times in the preseason, with San Francisco leading the all-time series 6-3.

VIKINGS

  • The 49ers lead the all-time preseason series 4-3 and are 2-0 against the Vikings at home during the preseason.
