Saints 2012 schedule
In a challenging 2012 schedule, the New Orleans Saints will face the defending Super Bowl champions on the road for the second consecutive season, and play five games in a 25-day period in November, it was announced today by the NFL. The road to Super Bowl XLVII, which will be played in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Feb. 2, 2013, will begin for the Saints when they open their regular season by hosting the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 9.

After taking on the Redskins, the Saints will open divisional play when they travel to the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 16 (noon CT). New Orleans will face their first AFC West opponent of 2012 when they host the Kansas City Chiefs at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sept. 23 (noon CT) and then travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 30 (3:15 p.m. CT) to close out the month.

The Saints will play their first prime-time game of the season on Oct. 7, when they host the San Diego Chargers (7:30 p.m. CT) on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, followed by a week six bye. The Saints will resume play at Raymond James Stadium when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at noon on Oct. 21, opening a series for 2012 in which the two clubs have split each season since 2008. New Orleans will then close out their October slate on prime-time on Oct. 28, when they travel to Denver on Sunday night (7:30 p.m. CT) in the first time the Saints face QB Peyton Manning since Super Bowl XLIV.

A compressed November schedule will begin on November 5, when the Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles (7:30 p.m. CT) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. New Orleans then hosts Atlanta at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Nov. 11 (noon CT). They will then travel to the Coliseum to face the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 18. In a rematch of the NFC Divisional Playoff, the Black-and-Gold will then host the San Francisco 49ers (3:15 p.m. CT) on Nov. 25. New Orleans has defeated their former NFC West rivals six consecutive times. New Orleans will then face their most longstanding rival for the second time in 18 days when they travel to the Georgia Dome to face the Falcons in a nationally televised Thursday night contest (7:30 p.m. CT).

New Orleans will travel to MetLife Stadium for the first time to face the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants in a game scheduled for 3:15 p.m. on Dec. 9, followed by a home matchup with Tampa Bay, Dec. 16. The Saints will then travel to Dallas for a Dec. 23 game at the Cowboys before closing the regular season on Dec. 30, hosting Carolina at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (noon CT).

It's a tough schedule but not bad at all. I would rather see our bye week later in the season, after Vitt's suspension.

AllSaints 04-17-2012 06:28 PM

That was known weeks ago. We just didn't know WHEN we would be there. Soon after the Super Bowl they release opponents. A few weeks later they release home and away. Today they released dates. It goes who, where, and then when.

We knew before 'bountygate' that we'd be playing at Lambeau. I'm disappointed that we play the Giants in December. 4:15 game in December up here in NY is not fun to sit in. I was definitely going to the game if it was in the beginning of the year, now I'll play it by ear.

Horsepoop that they stuck our bye in to our schedule when Vitt can't work with the team.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 07:39 PM.
