Who will Saints open with?

ORLANDO, Fla. -- We probably won’t see the full NFL schedule for another few weeks, but we should start getting some highlights in the next few hours or days.

NFL owners are in the opening session of their annual meeting. If recent history is any indication, we might hear about some opening-week games and prime-time pairings when commissioner Roger Goodell addresses the media around noon.

We already know the world champion New Orleans Saints will host the season-opening game on a Thursday night. We soon should find out who the opponent will be. Looking at the list of home opponents for the Saints, it’s likely they’ll be facing the Vikings, Steelers or Falcons. Stay tuned. As soon as there is an announcement, I'll let you know.
