    nola.com says the Saints will play on back-to-back Thursday nights in November. They'll host the Falcons on Thankgiving night, then visit the Cowboys the following week.

    That sucks. I don't like Thursday night games, esp. for the players.

    Well, the second one won’t be so bad since it’s a week apart followed by a 10 day window before the next game.

    IMO, Thursday night games are proof that everything the NFL says about caring about player safety is bullshit.

    Vikings, Rams and Eagles in 4 weeks time, followed by the Falcons. If they get through that stretch 3-2, it will be a miracle. The good news is, they should be no worse than 4-2 going into that stretch.

    Also, Saints are one of only 3 teams that will have a 3-game road stand this season. Good thing is, they are spread out with a Thursday, a Sunday, then a Monday nigh.

    That 5-game stretch from Minnesota to Atlanta on Thanksgiving is scary. All 3 division champs in 3 straight weeks, then a potential trap game with Cincinnati and finish with the Dirty Birds. That's brutal.

    Need any more proof that Roger Goodell hates the Saints.

    5 prime time games. Nice. A televised Saints games is a rare occurrence in the DFW.
