New Orleans Saints 2021 Schedule released
Wednesday, the NFL released the first ever 17 game schedule for the New Orleans Saints who, even without Drew Brees, are in line for five primetime games in 2021.
They kick things off in New Orleans against the Green Bay Packers before hitting the road for three out of their next four games, leading up to a week six bye.
It’s an extra long bye week, setting the stage for a Monday Night showdown in Seattle against the Seahawks and the 12th Man.
That’s followed by two NFC South home games and then a two-game road swing before returning to the Superdome for a Thanksgiving night affair versus the Buffalo Bills.
In fact, back-to-back Thursday games for the Saints, and a ton of primetime games in general down the stretch.
In week 15, the Saints travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Super Bowl champion Bucs on Sunday Night Football before returning to the Big Easy in week 16 to host the Dolphins on Monday Night Football.
They end the season at the rival Falcons.
