The 2012 NFL regular season schedule has come to a close, something that couldn’t have happened soon enough for the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans struggled through a tough season that was filled with distractions. Bountygate, interim head coaches and one of the league’s worst defenses were all issues plaguing the Saints this season. New Orleans was able to ink a deal with head coach Sean Payton in the last week of the regular season, so that should add some stability for the 2013 season. The Saints will have to deal with some serious salary cap issues but now can look ahead to the start of free agency and the 2013 NFL Draft. It’s also time to look at the New Orleans Saints 2013 NFL regular season schedule. Dates and times of games will be determined later this Spring, typically in April.
The NFC South teams will play their typical home and away series with divisional rivals in 2013. The South teams will also play teams from the AFC East as well as the NFC West. At-Large games, which are determined by how teams finish the season in their respective decisions, will be played against teams from the NFC East as well as the NFC North.
