The NFL schedule release has become a big event, both ESPN and the NFL Network will have specials tonight covering it. Yes, it's a bit of overkill, after all we already know every opponent for each of the 32 NFL teams for the upcoming 2015.
What is interesting however is the order in which our favorite team will play its opponents. When do the Saints get their bye week? When's the murderous stretch? Is there an easy three-week stretch in there that we can already write down as a definite 3-0 record?
The speculation is what makes it fun, because from tonight on, based on opponents last season's records and offseason moves, we can all put on our Nostradamus pointy hat and see the future.
Here are the Saints opponents in 2015:
Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Jacksonville, Tennessee, Detroit.
Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Philadelphia, Washington, Houston, Indianapolis, Arizona.
At a glance, here are some can't miss home games: Atlanta, Dallas. One of these games (maybe both) is likely to be a primetime, nationally-televised contest.
Can't miss road games include a clash with Andrew Luck's Colts and the usual hate-fest game at Atlanta. One of these games could also end up being on Thursday, Sunday or Monday night.
Who Dat Nation, how do you see the 2015 season going? also: are you not entertained???
