Saints 2016 Schedule


Ready for football yet? The Saints released their 2016 schedule on Thursday (4.14) night— and it’s a tough one. The Black n’ Gold were handed the fourth most difficult schedule (statistically) in the league.

 

Opponents boasted a .547 win percentage last season and five teams slated to face the Saints made it to the playoffs last year. Perhaps, solace can be found in the fact that Atlanta’s schedule is even tougher.

 

As for Atlanta, they will be hosting New Orleans in our final regular season game on January 1st. They will also be in town for a Monday night face-off on September 26th.

 

Out of division opponents include the dreaded 49ers, native son Eli Manning’s Giants, and the Seahawks.

 

Check out the full schedule below.
