Welcome to Saints Gameday!


Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0) at New Orleans Saints (0-0)

The Saints face the Bucs in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome today to open the 2018 NFL season. We’ve all waited a long time for this game and this season to get underway, but at long last the time is nearly upon us. After coming within a moment of reaching the NFC Championship Game last season, the goals are set even higher for the Saints this year.

The Saints have not won a season opener since 2013, and until last year the Saints had not reached the playoffs in a season where they lost a Week 1 game under Sean Payton. Although that terrible trend is over, it would be great to see the Saints start the season in the win column for a change. The time is here, and the Saints’ time is now! Who Dat!
