NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The Saints schedule release Thursday night brought a realization of just how challenging the 2020 season could be. In the final four games of the season, three of their opponents will be playoff participants from 2019. As a testament to the intrigue surrounding what could be Drew Brees’ final season, New Orleans is preliminarily slated for a national audience in 9 of their 16 games.
FOX 8 Saints Analyst Deuce McAllister thinks the overall challenge of the campaign will make it tough for the Saints to match the 13-3 mark they reached the last two seasons “It’s a difficult schedule. When you look at it, at first glance, it’s probably 11-5 or 12-4, somewhere in there. Everything would have to fall into perfect for you to hit another type of season. Now the talent is definitely there, that won’t be the question. The question will be how quickly can this team come together.”
