The 49ers' 2012 schedule: five games in prime time

The 49ers schedule is out, and as expected the team will have plenty of games at prime time. In fact, they will have the maximum number possible -- five games. Two will be on Monday night, against the Cardinals and Bears, while another two will be on Sunday night (Detroit and New England) and one on Thursday night (Seattle).

The schedule also holds the possibility of another week in Youngstown, Ohio. Last year the 49ers practiced there between a Week 3 game in Cincinnati and a Week 4 game in Philadelphia. They won both. This year Week 3 is in Minneapolis while the team will visit the New York Jets in Week 4.
