The New Orleans Saints have unveiled their 2020 preseason schedule.
The preseason slate of contests begins with a pair of road games, followed by two home contests at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
New Orleans and the Los Angeles Rams are scheduled to open the newly constructed SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., when they play Los Angeles on Friday, August 14, with a 9:00 p.m. kickoff. The clubs are tied at 2-2 in the preseason series, the Rams lead the regular season series 41-33 and the postseason rivalry is tied 1-1.
The Saints are 26-27 in preseason openers all-time after falling to Minnesota 34-25 in the 2019 opener.
The Saints will then head north to face the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday, Aug. 23. The contest will be nationally televised FOX at 7 p.m. The Saints lead the Steelers 9-7 in the regular season series, while Pittsburgh holds a 9-3 edge in the preseason.
The third game will see New Orleans kickoff their 2020 Mercedes-Benz Superdome slate and play the Houston Texans on Saturday, Aug. 29 at 7:00 p.m. The Saints hold a 5-5 preseason record against the Texans and a 3-2 regular season mark after their come-from-behind 30-28 season-opening win over Houston in 2019.
The Saints will then close out the preseason at the Superdome against the Miami Dolphins prior to the roster cutdown to 53 players.
