Their opponents in 2020, it could happen again.

With the regular season coming to a close on the Niners’ thrilling last-second win over the Seahawks, the NFL’s standings became etched in stone, setting the table for next year.

The Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills will come to Levi’s Stadium while the 49ers will travel to play the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.

Rounding out the home schedule will be Washington and the Miami Dolphins. The Niners will also travel twice to New York, facing both the Jets and the Giants.

Of course, they’ll play home and away games against NFC West foes in the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks.

They could even see the Seahawks again this season if Seattle wins its wild-card game.

Next season’s schedule will feature three trips to the Eastern time zone and two to the Central time zone, likely candidates for Sunday morning games.

And just a hunch, but something tells me the 49ers may see another prime-time game against the Seahawks.

The NFL tends to release its schedule for the upcoming year in April, so there’s still plenty of waiting to see how the Niners’ games will eventually line up. Plus, they’ve got a little business to tend to before they can start thinking about next season.

Non-playoff teams also learned their draft slots Sunday based on the 2019 season’s results, but the 49ers’ will be determined by their postseason success.
