The San Francisco 49ers have their preseason schedule announced, and their game agains the Denver Broncos is set for the third contest of the preseason. Considering it's the third preseason game, it's likely the best glimpse you'll get of Manning before the regular season starts, since that's when most of the starting lineup sees the most action. It's the best chance at seeing the 49ers at full-strength and back in action.
Full schedule with TV listings and times (PT) attached.
Friday, August 10th vs. Minnesota Vikings, 6 PM on CBS 5: A nice warmup game for San Francisco fans against a lowly opponent, and a decent way to ease into the season.
Saturday, August 18th vs. Houston Texans, 5 PM on CBS 5: Probably the toughest game of the preseason.
Sunday, August 26th vs. Denver Broncos, 1 PM on FOX
Thursday, August 30th vs. San Diego Chargers, 7:05 PM on CBS 5: This will be another one of those depth chart games, where no one of significance plays and every player fighting to get on the 53-man roster gets their chance to shine.
No Raiders game, as expected.
