New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints wrapped up the preseason with a 22-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

This was only the second time the Saints had ever faced the Ravens in the preseason. On Aug. 26, 2005 the two teams played the last game in the Superdome before Hurricane Katrina.

As expected, most of the Saints’ stars sat — Drew Brees warmed up before the game and dressed out in full pads, but never made it off the sideline. The fourth preseason game is a chance to evaluate players before the final cuts to make the 53-man regular season roster. Coach Sean Payton:

The New Orleans Saints will roll into the Superdome Friday evening for their first home game since December 29.

However, it’s just a preseason game, which is little more than a glorified practice session. There is not much on the line, other than some jockeying at the edges of the roster.

Drew Brees will almost certainly remain out, nursing a strained oblique — which are the muscles on the side of the body — so look for more backup QB competition between Luke McCown and Ryan Griffin.

It's just about that time: New Orleans is getting ready for yet another historic Super Bowl victory.

All we need to do is win all these games first. No problem.

The New Orleans Saints will kick off their 2014 season in the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons.

The schedule, released by the NFL late Wednesday evening, has the Saints competing in five primetime games this year, the first in week four at Dallas against the Cowboys. They'll also face the Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers and a Monday Night Football Game versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Full season schedule:

The New Orleans Saints preseason schedule was announced Wednesday afternoon.

The Saints will begin the preseason in St. Louis versus the Rams, then travel home to face the Tennessee Titans. Those dates are still to be announced.

The preseason opener against the Rams will feature a familiar face at defensive coordinator on the St. Louis sideline: former Saints Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams. Williams was a central figure in the bounty scandal that sidelined key New Orleans players and coaches during the 2012 season.

Crawfish season brings invitations that are as much about socializing as feasting.

This week, New Orleans Saints faithful must watch as Broncos fans — in their safety orange jerseys — and Seahawks fans — in their murky neon — psych up for the Super Bowl, instead of the Black and Gold.

It can be downright dispiriting. But, if there’s one bright side Saints fans know to look for, it’s cultural consolation, and food is a big part of that salve.

The New Orleans Saints will face off against the Seattle Seahawks this Saturday, but the matchup isn't just on the football field.

The New Orleans Saints won their first road playoff game this past Saturday, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 26-24, thanks to a field goal by kicker Shayne Graham with just three seconds to play.

The conventional wisdom — espoused by the NFL’s rotating cast of professional prognosticators — said that the New Orleans Saints couldn’t win a game in the cold, and couldn’t win a playoff game on the road.
