Opponents' 2008 record: 113-142-1

Worth noting: The 49ers face half as many East Coast trips as they did this season. Overall, they face eight games against teams that finished with winning records in 2008. That includes games against the Titans (13-3), Colts (12-4), Falcons (11-5), Vikings (10-6), Eagles (9-6-1) and Bears (9-7), plus two games against the Cardinals (9-7).

What we learned Sunday: As the second-place team in the NFC West, the 49ers drew a home game against the Falcons (second in NFC South) and a road game against the Eagles (second in NFC East).
