Saints 2015 Preseason Scheduled Unveiled
The New Orleans Saints released their 2015 preseason schedule today, with a nationally televised home matchup highlighting the four contests.
With only one nationally televised game, the exact date and kickoff time for the other three matchups has not been determined yet, but each opponent for each week of the preseason has been.
The NFL preseason begins August first with the Hall of Fame game between the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the rest of the league beginning their preseasons the following week (either Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday).
New Orleans travels to Baltimore for their first preseason matchup, taking on the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.
The following week, the Saints return home to host the Super Bowl XLIX champion New England Patriots.
Week 3 pits a nationally televised matchup as the Houston Texans visit the Saints on Sunday, August 30th. The contest will kickoff at 3:00, and air on FOX. The Saints/Texans preseason matchup is becoming somewhat of a tradition, with both teams getting in several training camp fights on more than one occasion in recent years. There's no word yet on if the teams plan to hold any joint practices before the matchup.
Week 4 puts the Saints on the road for a final tuneup against the Green Bay Packers.
