Saints 2013 preseason opponents announced


The New Orleans Saints will face four AFC opponents in their 2013 preseason schedule.

In week one of preseason the Saints will host the new look Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid takes over a team that loss 14 games last season. Unfortunately one of the victories came against the Saints, 27-24 in overtime.

The Saints will host the Oakland Raiders in week two. Last year New Orleans traveled to Oakland and defeated the Raiders 38-17.

For the fourth year in a row the New Orleans Saints will face the Houston Texans. The game will be played at Reliant Stadium on August 25th at 3:00 p.m. nationally on Fox.

The Saints will travel to Miami in week four to play the Dolphins. Miami holds a 13-7 edge against New Orleans in preseason games.

The Saints are coming off a disappointing 7-9 season that had the "bounty scandal" cloud over the team for much of the year.

Head coach Sean Payton is back from a year long suspension and former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan takes over a unit that struggled for most of the 2012 season.

The dates and times of the Kansas City, Oakland and Miami games will be announced at a later date.
