Source: 49ers to play Saints September 20 on Monday Night Football

Update: MM tweeting that "an insider not associated with the 49ers" hinted the 49ers would open the season on Monday Night Football. We'll find out in half an hour.

We'll have the schedule in a couple hours, but reports are surfacing with various elements of the schedule already. The most recent comes from WDSU in New Orleans, which has the 49ers reportedly playing the New Orleans Saints on Monday night September 20. This would certainly be a challenging game early on in the schedule. I'm getting pretty excited to see how this schedule breaks down.

The 49ers will get a prime-time game with the Broncos in London, and I'd hope at least one more. I was thinking we might see the Cardinals-49ers in prime-time, but with the retirement of Warner, maybe not so much?
