Cowboys a newcomer on S.F.'s preseason slate
The 49ers also will meet regular preseason foes Oakland and San Diego, and also will play an exhibition against the Chicago Bears for the second time in three years. The Niners will kick off their second exhibition season under coach Mike Nolan against the Bears at Monster Park in San Francisco during the week of Aug. 10-14. It will be the sixth consecutive year the 49ers meet the Raiders in the preseason since the exhibition series resumed between the two teams in 2001. The Niners and Raiders had met in the preseason 27 consecutive years before that streak was halted in 1994 because of differences that developed between rival team leaders. San Francisco won last year's game against Oakland 21-13 on the way to a 2-2 preseason finish. The Raiders still lead the all-time preseason series by a slim 17-16 margin. The 49ers then will travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys, where they'll meet former teammate Terrell Owens for the first time wearing a Cowboys uniform. The saga of Owens as a controversial NFL figure began when - as a 49er - he celebrated on the Cowboys' midfield star at Texas Stadium twice after scoring touchdowns during San Francisco's 41-24 win there in 2000. The Niners will end the preseason at home during the week of Aug. 31-Sept. 2 against the San Diego Chargers, San Francisco's most familiar preseason opponent. The Chargers and Niners will be meeting for the 20th consecutive year in an exhibition game.
