The New Orleans Saints are Great for TV Ratings

The NFL's small-market teams typically are not favorites of the major networks. The New Orleans Saints are atypical and have become "network darlings" for television ratings over the recent years. Will this trend continue without their legendary quarterback, Drew Brees, in 2021?

The Wall Street Journal attributed a 7% NFL ratings drop to the "2020 presidential election coverage siphoning away viewers and the pandemic's wreaking havoc on the league."

Nevertheless, networks must expect a turnaround will occur in 2021. In March, the NFL signed new media rights agreements with CBS, NBC...

The New Orleans Saints traded four Day 3 selections in the 2020 NFL draft to the Minnesota Vikings to move back into the 3rd round of last year’s draft. They used the 105th overall selection on the tight end from the University of Dayton, Adam Trautman. Trautman appeared in 15 games last season, catching 15 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown.

Once Trautman got acclimated to the speed and intricacies of the NFL, he earned more playing time as the year progressed. He started five of the year’s last seven contests, and 12 of his 15 receptions came in the previous nine games. Veterans Josh...

The New Orleans Saints have one of the more favorable strengths of schedule going into the new season, as their opponent lineup record from last year comes in at 131-140-1 (.483).

You can look at it two ways: It's ranked 22nd lowest or 11th easiest related to other teams.

Of course, this doesn't assure anything when it comes to how things play out in the new season. In 2014, the Saints had one of the easier schedules (.469 - 23rd), but ended up finishing 7-9. In 2016, the team had the fourth-highest strength of schedule (.547) and also finished 7-9.

Conversely, this worked to their...

He said he wasn't scared when he got the diagnosis and trusted his doctors, but the only information he researched was stories of athletes like cyclist Lance Armstrong and third baseman Mike Lowell, both of whom successfully underwent treatment for testicular cancer. Cooney was thrilled when he...
