We all know the New Orleans Saints are going to be on a warpath this season. We just didn't know who they were going to run through, and when.
Ever since the Saints had their season stolen from them in the NFC Championship thanks to an infamous missed pass interference penalty, we've all had a revenge tour set up in our minds. The idea is good and fun, but they definitely have a few obstacles in their way.
The NFL has officially released the Saints' schedule for the 2019 regular season.
The Saints definitely proved themselves last season, but they're going to need a lot more than just a vengeance-driven storyline to get back to where they need to be.
The regular season starts off on a brutal note for the Saints. They face the defending AFC South champion Houston Texans in a primetime Monday Night Football showdown, followed by an NFC Championship rematch against the Rams. They then face two more playoff teams before getting an easier division matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who they lost two last season.
My quick take: Fun and dramatic start to Saints' schedule: MNF opener, then Rams rematch https://t.co/4L2xIbu689— Mike Triplett (@MikeTriplett) April 18, 2019
Even their matchups against non-playoff teams are tough. They face the Jaguars who were in the AFC Championship in 2017-18 and now have a Super Bowl MVP at QB.
It's still early, but it sounds like every Saints game will be must-watch.
