A new season brings new hope for the Who Dat Nation. Coach Payton is back for the 2013 season and a tough schedule lies ahead. The Saints open up with the Dirty Birds from Atlanta in the Superdome and play four games in prime time this season (Monday night vs Dolphins, Sunday night vs Cowboys, Thursday night at Falcons, Monday night at Seahawks).
The toughest part of the schedule will be weeks 10 through 13 when the Saints play the Cowboys, 49ers, Falcons, and Seahawks. If the Saints can win two or more out of those four games, they will be in the playoff hunt. Another interesting week will be the sixth game of the year when they play the Patriots. That could be the week that Tom Brady breaks the record for consecutive games with a TD pass (currently held by Drew Brees). Do you think the NFL schedule makers had planned that ahead of time???
It’s going to be another exciting season for the Bless You Boys!! I will be blogging about their games throughout the year, so stay tuned.
