Matt Maiocco has heard reports that the 49ers will open the 2014 NFL season in Dallas against the Cowboys

Fooch's Update #2: 49ers schedule has been released!

Fooch's Update: 49ers could be hosting Seahawks for Thanksgiving. Can't confirm this, but rumors buzzing:

As info leaks out about the NFL's 2014 schedule, Matt Maiocco tweeted that he's heard the 49ers will open the year on the road in Dallas, facing their old rivals the Cowboys.

While I was expecting a match-up against one of the final teams left standing in the 2013 playoffs, this doesn't surprise me, either.

The 49ers were long-time rivals with the Cowboys, having post-seasons snatched away from them as Dallas went on to dominate the 1990s. As fans we generally still don't like (and routinely make fun of) the Cowboys, too, so this will generate plenty of ratings.

Dallas is a strange team to get a bead on, often looking among the NFL's elite, only to stumble at crucial moments and bring out the mocking sports memes. Still I think it's fair to say that this is a winnable game for the 49ers to kick off their 2014.

Stay tuned as we get more info about this year's schedule.
