NFL: NFC Wild Card-Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

After months of waiting, the 2018 New Orleans Saints schedule is here. The NFL officially released their schedule on Thursday evening. All kickoff times are central.

2018 Regular Season Schedule

The Saints will have five prime time showdowns in 2018, hosting two of them. Clearly, the obvious stretch of three games within a 12-day span is something to watch, as Sean Payton’s squad has back-to-back Thursday games after hosting the defending Super Bowl champions. Last season, the Saints had entertaining games against the Vikings and Rams. New Orleans has a strength of schedule of .535 (137-119), which is tied for second-highest with the Green Bay Packers.
