NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Who will the quarterbacks be?
That’s the question as the Saints 2021 season opener was revealed by the club Wednesday morning.
The Saints will host the Green Bay Packers Sunday September 12th at 3:25 p.m.
It will be the Saints first game of the post Drew Brees era. And, the Packers quarterback situation is murky at best, as NFL 2020 MVP Aaron Rodgers has reportedly asked Green Bay for a trade.
The Saints play four of their first six games on the road. And, five games in prime time.
In September, the Saints host Green Bay, go to Carolina September 19th, and play at New England September 26th.
In October, the Saints host the Giants on the 3rd, play at Washington on the 10th, have a bye week, then play at Seattle on Monday night October 25th.
The Saints close out the month on Sunday October 31st, hosting the Super Bowl champion Bucs.
In November, the Saints host the Falcons on the 7th, travel to Tennessee on the 14th, play at Philadelphia on the 21st, and four days later host the Bills on Thanksgiving night at the Superdome.
In December, the Saints host Dallas on Thursday the 2nd, play at the New York Jets December 12th, at Tampa Bay on Sunday night December 19th.
The Saints host Miami on Monday night December 27th.
In January the Saints host the Panthers on the 2nd, and close the regular season on the 9th at Atlanta.
