The 5 Toughest Games On The San Francisco 49ers' Schedule

The San Francisco 49ers have a tough road ahead of them in their quest to make it back to the NFL Playoffs next season. These are the 5 toughest games standing between the 2015 49ers and a postseason berth:

5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (September 20th)

Pittsburgh has become a legitimate Super Bowl contender behind the play of Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown, all of whom will provide the Niners with a tough test in their second game of the season.

4) @ Arizona Cardinals (September 27th)

Here’s a sneaky entrant on our list. The Cardinals defense is an absolute machine from front seven to secondary and they make any contest a slog in the mud. The Cards’ offense hinges on Carson Palmer’s health, but the defense is enough to place Arizona in this mix.

3) Seattle Seahawks (October 22nd)

San Francisco is salivating at the chance to host their hated rivals again, especially on a Thursday night. However, the Seahawks are one of the best teams in the league for a reason, and preparing for them on a short week will be very difficult.

2) Green Bay Packers (October 4th)

Green Bay will be on a mission to get to the Super Bowl this year after they lost the NFC Championship Game in devastating fashion, and they’ll be looking to make a big statement in the first game of the season.

1) @ Seattle Seahawks (November 22nd)

The defending NFC Champs always seem to kick it into an extra gear once they get a couple of games under their belts – especially at home. Chasing Russell Wilson, Jimmy Graham, and Marshawn Lynch all over CenturyLink Field is going to be a tall task.
