The NFL is always holding out on us!

The regular season schedule came out on April 20th. For whatever reason, the NFL holds off on the dates and times of the preseason schedules until after the draft.

Well, as you all know, the draft is over, and teams are either cheering, or crying over their picks.

That also means that it's time for the preseason schedule to be released. So they've done that. And here it is.

Thursday, Aug. 10: New Orleans Saints at Cleveland Browns, 7 p.m.

Sunday, Aug. 20: New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Chargers, 7 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 26: Houston Texans at New Orleans Saints, 7 p.m.

Thursday, Aug. 31: Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints, 7 p.m.

Preseason is, of course, the time for those vying for spots on the team to show what they can do. While the coaches look at the players to see who makes the cut. You'll notice that the last three games of the preseason will all be played within 11 days of each other.
