Road game to be televised by ESPN
By Mike Triplett/Times-Picayune
he Saints announced most of their preseason schedule Thursday, which includes a nationally televised road opener at Arizona on Thursday, Aug. 7, and a home game against Houston on Saturday, Aug. 16.
The Saints will round out their preseason schedule with a trip to Cincinnati in Week 3 and a home finale against Miami in Week 4. Dates and times have not been released. The opener against the Cardinals, set for 7 p.m., will be televised by ESPN.
The time has not been set for the preseason home opener, but Saints spokesman Greg Bensel confirmed the date. He also confirmed that the Texans will come to New Orleans early that week to practice against the Saints on Wednesday and Thursday at the team's Metairie practice facility.
The Saints are expected to hold their training camp in Jackson, Miss., for the third year in a row, though the team has not officially announced its plans yet. If that's the case, the Saints will break camp and return to Metairie before the Texans arrive.
"We're going to take our team there hopefully on Tuesday night, practice with New Orleans on Wednesday and Thursday, then by ourselves on Friday," Texans Coach Gary Kubiak told the Houston-area media. "Just a little change of pace, change of scenery during camp, and work against a very good football team."
