The San Francisco 49ers will travel the fifth most miles of any NFL team this season.

State of play: Of the NFL teams not leaving the U.S. to play in one of the five internationally scheduled games this season, the 49ers will travel the fourth most miles, according to Bookies.

  • That includes 26 time zone changes, which could contribute to players feeling the effects of jet lag.

What to watch: The 49ers also got the short end of the stick when it comes to its "rest differential" — the amount of rest players get in between games compared to its opponents, according to ESPN reporter Brian Burke.

  • The Niners will have the third-worst rest differential since 2002, but the team did just fine with its limited rest last season, when they made the Super Bowl.
