The NFL has relieved many die-hard football fans with the announcement of the 2013 NFL schedule’s announcement date.
Yes, an announcement of an announcement is getting everyone riled up. This is professional football at its finest. People care so much about their teams in April. They also want to start making travel arrangements.
We know who and where the 49ers will play in 2013, we just don’t know when. Actually, we know the 49ers will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 27 in London, England as part of the league’s International Series.
The 49ers will host division foes, Arizona, Seattle and St. Louis. San Francisco will also welcome Atlanta, Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis and Green Bay in the final season of Candlestick Park.
On the road, the 49ers will travel to Arizona, Seattle, St. Louis, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville (London), Tennessee and Washington.
San Francisco’s 2013 schedule intrigues NFL.com writer Elliot Harrison. The NFL scribe has three 49ers games listed in his top games on the 2013 slate.
San Francisco’s second matchup with Seattle comes in at No. 3 on the list.
“While we don’t know where — or exactly when — this game will be played yet, we do know it will be physical,” Harrison wrote. “We know it will have some playoff implications.”
