Saints Pre-Season Schedule Released!

Finally something worth talking about!

The NFL released it's full pre-season schedule for the 2010 season just minutes ago. Here is how it stacks up for the Saints:

Week 1 (Aug12-16) - New Orleans Saints @ New England Patriots

Week 2 (August 19-23) - Houston Texans @ New Orleans Saints

Week 3 (August 27, CBS) - San Diego Chargers @ New Orleans Saints 

Week 4 (Sept. 2-3) - New Orleans Saints @ Tennessee Titans

Though most dates and times have not been set yet, it was announced that the Saints Week 3 game against the Chargers will kick off at 8pm ET on CBS against the San Diego Chargers. I guess they feel if they can't get the match-up they want in the Super Bowl, they can force it during the pre-season. 

Also of note, the Saints will be playing the Houston Texans yet again during the pre-season and will probably practice together the week before, as they have in the past. 

Other points of interest across the league:

Two of those clubs -- the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys -- will kick off the preseason in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, Aug. 8 (NBC, 8 p.m. ET) in Canton, Ohio.

  The New Meadowlands Stadium will open in primetime on Monday, Aug. 16 (ESPN, 8 p.m. ET), when the New York Jets host the New York Giants in the first game at the teams' new stadium.
