Looking ahead: 49ers' 2011 opponents

That was easy.

The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals share opponents and venues for their intraconference and interconference opponents past the 2010 season.

I was able to basically paste the information from Arizona's entry into this one for the 49ers.

I'll cover schedules for the remaining NFC West teams separately. The NFL has made available this information for 2011.

The final row of the chart shows opponents based on how teams finish in the previous season's standings. NFC West teams are paired with NFC East and NFC North teams this season, meaning the NFC West champion Cardinals face the NFC East champs (Dallas Cowboys) and NFC North champs (Minnesota Vikings).
