From the Times-Pic:

The NFL announced the 2008 regular-season schedule, which includes three nationally televised prime-time games for the Saints. They will host Minnesota on Monday night, Oct. 6 and host Green Bay on Monday night, Nov. 24. They will also play at Chicago on Thursday night, Dec. 11.

The Saints will open the season at home against division rival Tampa Bay on Sunday, Sept. 7, and they will finish the season at home against division rival Carolina on Sunday, Dec. 28.

But they will spend more than a month away from home in the middle of the season. They're at Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 19, followed immediately by their week-long trip to London for a "home game" against the San Diego Chargers. After that, they'll have a bye week to recover from the jet lag, followed by a trip to Atlanta in Week 10 and a trip to Kansas City in Week 11.

Keep in mind, some of these times are subject to change based on the whims of TV networks later in the year. Beginning in Week 11, any one of the Saints' Sunday afternoon games could be selected for the prime time Sunday night slot.
