Despite a third-place finish in the South, New Orleans’ 2016 lineup features opponents a combined 24 games (140-116) over .500 in 2015. The schedule includes six games against 2015 playoff teams.

If you take away the two games against division foe -- 15-1 this season -- the remaining opponents were four game under .500 this season.

The Saints’ 2016 home schedule is stout. Outside the NFC South foes, Seattle, Denver and Oakland are among the opponents inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2016. New Orleans is 7-9 at home over the past two seasons.

The road schedule is no bargain, either. In addition to the division games, the Black and Gold will visit the Giants, Arizona, San Francisco, Kansas City and San Diego.

I hate soft schedules anyway. I want every win to be a big win.
I'd rather attend a game vs. an opponent I'd be excited to beat.
