New Orleans preseason schedule

By Pat Yasinskas

The New Orleans Saints will get plenty of national exposure in the preseason and they’ll also play an extra game.

It already had been announced the Saints will kick off the NFL’s preseason schedule against the Arizona Cardinals in the Aug. 5 Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. That game will be carried on NFL Network. The Saints also will play a nationally televised game Aug. 25, when they host Houston in a CBS game.

The exact dates haven’t been set for the other three games. But the Saints will play at New England sometime between Aug. 9 and 13. They’ll host Jacksonville between Aug. 16 and 20. They’ll finish their preseason either Aug. 29 or Aug. 30 at Tennessee.
