NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Saints will play in five primetime games in the 2014-2015 season.
The news comes after the NFL released its highly anticipated schedule Wednesday night.
The Saints will play Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Football twice. They have one Thursday Night Football game. They will open the season in Atlanta against the Falcons.
The first primetime game comes in week four in Dallas against the Cowboys, on Sunday, Sept. 28.
The Saints will face the Green Bay Packers in the Superdome for Sunday Night Football on Oct. 26. That’s week eight. Then, with just four days rest, the team will face off against the Panthers for Thursday Night Football in Carolina in week nine.
The team’s first Monday Night Football game will come at home against the Baltimore Ravens in week 12.
Three weeks later the team will again play on Monday night. They’ll head to Chicago to face off against the Bears.
The last two games of the season will be played on the regular Sunday 12 p.m. slot, but the Saints will face two division rivals, the Falcons and Buccaneers.
