How to watch 49ers vs. Cardinals in Week 1 online and on TV

49ers

At long last, Week 1 is here.

The 49ers intend to get back to the Super Bowl, and their journey begins on Sunday when they host the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium in the 2020 season opener.

After earning the top seed in the conference and steamrolling their way through the NFC playoffs last season, the 49ers enter 2020 with a roster that arguably is deeper and improved. Joe Staley, DeForest Buckner and Emmanuel Sanders are gone, but Trent Williams, Javon Kinlaw, Brandon Aiyuk, Jordan Reed and others have arrived, and few teams can measure up to the talent San Francisco has.

The Cardinals, however, are an improved bunch, too. They addressed the defensive side of the ball in the draft and free agency, and bolstered what was already a dynamic offense with the addition of star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. After being named the Offensive Rookie of the Year last season, quarterback Kyler Murray is poised to make a leap in 2020.

The 49ers defeated the Cardinals in both of their head-to-head matchups last season, but Arizona pushed them to the brink on each occasion. San Francisco is a significant favorite in Week 1, but it wouldn't be surprising whatsoever if it ended up being another nail-biter.
