The 49ers would score touchdowns on each of three Cowboys turnovers, all before halftime. Even though the Cowboys held a significant edge in 1st quarter time of possession (13:26 to 1:34), the 49ers had a 21-3 lead due to the turnovers. With the 49ers up 28-3, the Cowboys would find themselves with their largest halftime deficit in a home opener ever. Although the 49ers would not score again in the second half, they would only hold the Cowboys to 14 more points, and win the game.

In a pattern similar to the Dallas game of week one, the Niners jumped out to an early 17-0 lead, only to fall victim to a hailstorm of penalties, turnovers and a strong Bears comeback, 28-20. A blocked punt led to a Niner touchdown in the third minute of the game, but a seven minute drive later in the quarter stalled in the red zone and only yielded a field goal. After a short punt in the second quarter, the Niners scored a second touchdown, but Chicago answered with their first touchdown just before halftime. To start the third quarter, the Niners held the ball for more than nine minutes. But they once again failed in the red zone, and settled for another field goal. The Bears scored three touchdowns in the second half to emerge with the win. The Niners were called on 16 penalties for 118 yards, losing one touchdown run, and keeping Bears' drives alive on multiple occasions. Colin Kaepernick threw three interceptions, lost a fumble, and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct after an interception. The Niners outgained Chicago 361-216, and held the Bears to only 46 rushing yards, but the overwhelming weight of the turnovers and penalties negated any other advantage. The Bears scored touchdowns the last four times they had the ball.

For the third straight game, the Niners jumped out to an early lead, only to be shut out for the remainder of the game. And for the second straight game, mistakes and penalties allowed their opponent to take the victory. The Niners had pulled out to a 14-6 lead with 5:07 remaining in the second quarter, but saw the Cardinals score 17 unanswered points for a 23-14 victory. The Niners failed to score the last six times they had the ball, and racked up nine penalties for 107 yards, most in the second half.

The Niners broke the pattern of their first three games, and mounted a second half comeback to beat the Eagles (the 49ers trailed 21-10 in the second quarter). Philadelphia exploited Niner mistakes to score first half touchdowns on a blocked punt recovery, an interception return and a punt return. But the defense never allowed a point by the Eagles offense, who had led the league in scoring through the first 3 weeks of the season, and on the strength of two Colin Kaepernick touchdown passes and four Phil Dawson field goals, they took a late 26-21 lead. Late in the game the Eagles moved to the Niner one yard line, but they turned the ball over on downs, and the Niners held on for the win. The Niners outgained the Eagles 407-213, and held the ball for 42:17.

In a game that saw the return of Alex Smith to the Bay Area, the Niners prevailed in a see-saw game, 22-17, on the strength of five Phil Dawson field goals. Kansas City took an early lead on a Smith to Travis Kelce touchdown pass, but Colin Kaepernick hit Stevie Johnson with a TD pass just before halftime for a 13-10 lead. Smith struck again in the third quarter with a 17 yard scoring pass to De'Anthony Thomas, but Dawson hit three more field goals to give the Niners the win. The Niners outgained the Chiefs 357-264, and had a 36:04-23:56 time of possession advantage, but they only scored one touchdown in four trips into the red zone, continuing their season-long problem in that area.

After trailing 14-0 in the 1st quarter to the Rams, the 49ers completely turned the game around, outscoring the Rams 31-3 and won by a score of 31-17. With :24 left in the first half, the 49ers down 14-3 and getting outplayed on both sides of the ball, Colin Kaepernick hits Brandon Lloyd for an 80 yard touchdown pass that would eventually turn the game around and give the 49ers the momentum. Kaepernick threw for 343 yards and 3 touchdowns and Anquan Boldin had 7 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers defense recorded 5 sacks, matching their season total. It's the first time since 1986 that the 49ers have trailed by double digits and end up winning by double digits (last time was October 26, 1986 vs Green Bay). This is also the second time this season the 49ers erased a double digit deficit and won. (Week 4 vs. Eagles)

Behind Peyton Manning's four touchdown passes, the Broncos scored early and often, and administered a sound thrashing to the Niners, 42-17. After a Colin Kaepernick to Stevie Johnson touchdown pass had closed the halftime margin to 21-10, Denver exploded for three unanswered touchdowns in the third quarter to put the game away early. Manning was 22 of 26 for 318 yards and four touchdowns, with an almost-perfect quarterback rating of 157.2, as this was one of the worst displays of pass defense by the Niners in history. The Bronco defense held the Niners to 62 yards rushing and totally overwhelmed the offensive line.

With the season on the line, the 49ers got off to a quick start, leading 14-0 in the first quarter with a pair of rushing touchdowns by Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde. The Saints would rebound in the 2nd half to take a 24-21 lead. With 1:34 to go, and the 49ers facing a 4th and 10 from their own 22 yard line, Colin Kaepernick found a wide open Michael Crabtree for a 51 yard gain, that set up the game tying field goal. In overtime, Ahmad Brooks sacked Drew Brees, causing a fumble and recovered by the 49ers Chris Borland on the Saints' 17. On the very next play, Phil Dawson kicked the game winning field goal, giving the Niners a 27-24 win. This is the Saints first home loss in 12 games, and the first home loss under Sean Payton in 20 games (Payton was suspended for all of 2012 season).

With the 49ers offense continuing to struggle in the game, the defense more than made up for it. The 49ers defense intercepted Giants QB Eli Manning 5 times and sacked him twice. In the 4th quarter, with the 49ers holding a 16-10 lead, the Giants marched down the field to the 49ers 4 yard line with 5:25 left to play. The 49ers defense forced 3 incomplete passes and rookie linebackerChris Borland intercepted Eli Manning's throw on 4th and goal to preserve the win. This is the second time this season the 49ers defense had a goal line stand late in a game (Week 4 vs Eagles). Colin Kaepernick went 15/29 for 193 yards and a touchdown pass. Frank Gore had 19 carries for 95 yards. With the win, the 49ers move to 6-4 on the season.

Levi's Stadium parking issues[edit]

In November 2013, Levi's Stadium and 49ers' officials initially requested the NFL to not schedule any weekday home games during the preseason or regular season — including Monday and Thursday Night Football — during Levi's Stadium's inaugural season, due to parking issues in the Santa Clara area during weekdays.[8] Two months later (January 2014), the Santa Clara City Council approved a two-year deal with the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club that would have opened up 10,000 additional parking spaces within walking distance of Levi's Stadium, as well as reimbursed the club $250,000 for each year, which would have enabled the team to host Monday and Thursday night games for both the 2014 and 2015 seasons.[9] However, the NFL decided not to schedule any weeknight prime-time games at Levi's Stadium during the 2014 season, for the exception of the Week 13 Thanksgiving game, until traffic flow within the area is figured out.[10]
