The 2022 NFL Football season will be here before we know it. The NFL draft just ended where teams decided which new players they wanted to get to improve their team's chances in the upcoming year.

The NFL just released the schedules of all 32 teams in the league and that includes the New Orleans Saints. This year's team will have a whole new look, especially at the head coaching position.

The Saint's sidelines will look different this season after Sean Payton retired from football and the Saints after being the head coach of the team from 2006 to 2021. Saints fans have just become accustomed to seeing Payton on the sidelines for the past 15 seasons.

So the past two years, Saints fans have seen Drew Brees and now Sean Payton both retire. Now the head man is Dennis Allen and he will have some big shoes to fill.

Allen's test will start when the 2022 NFL regular season begins on Sunday, September 11th when they face off against the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta.

The Saints will first start with three pre-season games. Here is the pre-season schedule.

  • Preseason Week 1: at Houston Texans
  • Preseason Week 2: at Green Bay Packers
  • Preseason Week 3: vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Then the regular season for the Saints will start on September 11th. The Saints will have some really interesting home games in 2022.

One that raised our eyebrows first is when the Saints will host the Bengals and Joe Burrow on October 16th in the Big Easy. It will be the first time Burrow will return to Louisiana to play football as a professional.
