Here’s the Saints full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the New Orleans Saints schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the New Orleans Saints are officially set to kick off their 2021 season at home against the Green Bay Packers. Their first divisional game will be in Week 2, as they face the Carolina Panthers on the road.

The Saints put together a fantastic regular season in 2020 at 12-4 but after advancing past the Chicago Bears, their season was ended by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round. Drew Brees announced his football playing days are over, and the race to replace him should be interesting. Jameis Winston is probably the favorite to start Week 1, but he has to beat out Taysom Hill, and the Saints added former Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Ian Book in the third round of the NFL Draft. Regardless of who earns the job, New Orleans should expect to be a playoff team in 2021.

All times listed are Eastern.
