If it’s a home game, I would say Saints vs Cowboys(Thursday or Sunday Night opener)

If on Road, Saints vs Rams(Thursday or Sunday night)

One way or another, the Cowboys and Rams game will be prime time.

You're absolutely correct, but apparently in honor of the 100th anniversary of the NFL next season, they may want the Bears and Packers (the oldest two teams in the NFL) to open the season on Thursday night.

Linky:

Was coming to post the same thing.

Also reading your link from NBC, it’s sad they’re trying to give Duncan credit for breaking that news when Ed Werder posted it first and Duncan just latched on like it was his. Weak.

Saints first home game could easily be a Thursday night game in week two after playing on the road week one. I will say it goes like this:

Week One: Sunday Night in Los Angeles vs Rams

(Very short week and long travel day. Basically zero time to practice or game plan.)

Week Two: Thursday Night at Home vs Cowboys

NFL will pull out all the stops to make it excessively hard on the Saints after all of the totally justified complaining the team and fans have dished out.

I'm giving this about a 90% chance at happening.

I don't think the NFL will waste us vs Rams as a second of a double header on MNF. The opening week will be ripe with enough storylines that they can save Saints/Rams for a less eventful week.

No, the NFL was not going to comment on the game all throughout Super Bowl week, but you can bet they will happily milk the money cow off it next season.

not quite correct. The oldest team in the NFL is the Arizona Cardinals (founded in 1898, are a founding NFL franchise). The Bears are the second oldest team, (founded 1920, are a founding NFL franchise).

The Cardinals and Bears are the only two founding franchises left in the NFL. They were founded before the Bears though, in 1919 but The Packers did not join the NFL until 1921.
