We'll be looking to see how many primetime games the Saints get this season, where their bye week falls, whether they'll have to play up north in the cold winter months, or if they've got any particularly long stretches away from home.
As soon as the schedule is released, we'll have it posted here on Canal Street Chronicles. Keep in mind there are often a few schedule tidbits leaked before the official release so you'll want to be here early.
To build the anticipation and remind you who the Saints will be playing this season, here is a list of Saints' 2014 opponents and their preseason schedule.
