Here is the full schedule

The NFL will release the 2018 regular season schedule at 5 p.m. PT this evening. We know the 13 teams the San Francisco 49ers will face this season, but tonight will provide us details on when they will square off. The 49ers can also expect multiple primetime games.

The schedule formally drops at 5 p.m. but rumors will swirl before then. We’ll be tracking the rumors here, including non-49ers rumors of note. We’ll have the full 49ers schedule posted as soon as it is available.
