The world now seems right once again.
The Saints finished with an 11-5 record and captured second place in the NFC South. They traveled to play the Philadelphia Eagles in the postseason and won their first road playoff game in franchise history before falling to the eventual Super Bowl champions the next week.
New Orleans must build off all its 2013 experiences and grow in 2014 to give quarterback Drew Brees an opportunity to win another Super Bowl before his window of opportunity closes.
In addition to its normal six games against the NFL South, New Orleans will face the NFC North and the AFC North this season, just like the rest of the division. That leaves two games—on the road against the Dallas Cowboys and at home against the San Francisco 49ers—determined by where the Saints finished last year to round out the schedule.
Here’s a look at the complete 2014 Saints schedule with game-by-game analysis and predictions.
