Saints News, 4/15/16: Saints to Open vs Raiders

The schedules are finally released, and the Saints have got a doozy of a season. Everyone knew it would be difficult going up against the seemingly formidable AFC West and the Saint killing NFC West, but an early bye week and only one(!) primetime home game upped the ante. In a season that could go down as one of the two most important in team history, the Saints have a tall task ahead of them.
