The 2019 regular season schedule for the New Orleans Saints is finally out and they’ll be participating in four prime-time games this season.
The Saints will open up the season as the early Monday Night football game when they host the Houston Texans with kickoff at 6:10 pm. Week two is where things get interesting with a trip to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in a rematch of the controversial NFC championship game at 3:25 pm on September 15th. The Saints will continue their west coast road trip when they take on the Seattle Seahawks with kickoff slated for 3:25 pm and then they’ll wrap up the month of September with a Sunday night matchup at home against the Dallas Cowboys.
Week five sees New Orleans host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 6th for the first 12 pm kickoff of the season. The Saints will then hit the road to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on the 13th at 12 pm.
They’ll then hit the road on October 20th for a battle against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field with kickoff at 3:25 pm. The Saints will then head back to the friendly confines to wrap up October against the Arizona Cardinals for a noon kickoff followed by a bye week.
The month of November is a proverbial gauntlet when they face off with all three NFC South opponents, bookended by the Atlanta Falcons, including a Thanksgiving night contest in the ATL.
The Saints will return to home to open the month of December to square off with former NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers at 12 pm. New Orleans will then hit the road for a Monday Night Football matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. The season will then conclude with a road game against the Tennessee Titans and the Carolina Panthers.
