The New Orleans Saints have a good schedule in 2015 as they play the 28th most difficult schedule. These New Orleans Saints don’t play any road games on a short week and they obtain bye later in the season in Week 11. They get to play all three of the prime time games at home so there is no excuse with this team not to rebound in 2015 and make the playoffs. The New Orleans Saints open up week 1 on Sunday, September 13th at Arizona.
The New Orleans Saints don’t officially have the simplest schedule in the NFL for 2015 but it’s really close. They’ve just about everything in their favor this season. They’ll be playing all of their marquee games at home and they actually will host a Thursday night game for the first time since 2010. The Saints don’t have even a two-game road trip this season as their bye week breaks up their only two consecutive road games.
It’s so beneficial to the Saints in 2015 that there only really difficult stretch really has them playing three home games versus two road games. They host Dallas in Week 4 and then visit Philadelphia in Week 5. They do play on short rest in Week 6 on Thursday but they’re at home against Falcons. The Saints have extra time too before heading to Indianapolis before hosting the Giants. The main element for the Saints this season will undoubtedly be winning at home as they inexplicably struggled in the Superdome last season.
