NFL Schedule 2014: San Francisco to open new stadium against Denver Broncos

The NFL preseason schedule was released earlier this afternoon and with it comes a little bit of new preseason in of itself is pretty boring and hardly interesting to anyone other than those trying to make the team, there is indeed a notable game on the preseason slate that some will be paying attention to.

San Francisco is christening a new stadium this year as Levi’s Stadium — otherwise known as The Field of Jeans — will be breaking in its first game when the 49ers welcome in the Denver Broncos during the second week of the preseason.

The fact that this is just a preseason game really dampens the mood, but it’s going to be our first good and live look at the new stadium the 49ers built. Anytime a new stadium is opened it’s a pretty big deal in the NFL and anytime that team is opening a stadium for the first time in as long as the 49ers have waited, it’s even more of a big deal.

It’s just a preseason game, and the officially christening of the stadium won’t be until the home opener, but this is still going to have a place in the history of Levi’s Stadium.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should summon the courage to tell fans about the potential for a dominipede (multiple, simultaneous human stampedes). Such an event could very well impact the 1 p.m. slate of games. This is the most dangerous, asymmetric national security issue since 9/11.

    It’s paramount to warn fans that if they get an evacuation notice and/or panic-inducing information form their cell phone while a game is in progress… it’s almost certainly a hoax designed to create an artificially generated stampede.

    Of course, nobody will tell you this because of the catch-22. Learn more:
