The 2018 Saints Preseason has begun. Join us here for the game!

The New Orleans Saints begin the 2018 Preseason on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars tonight. Although wins and losses “don’t mean anything” in the preseason, it would be great to see the Saints come out strong against the AFC semifinalists from a season ago. The Jags are no longer the downtrodden franchise they had been for so long, as they had proven by coming within 15 minutes of the Super Bowl.

Those of you in the local New Orleans market will be able to watch the game live on FOX 8 (WVUE) while the rest of us will need to listen on and live vicariously though this thread until the NFL Network replay airs over the weekend. Here’s to a great showing from the Saints, and leaving Jacksonville as healthy as they arrived!
