Since the 2016 season is over for New Orleans, it's time for Saints fans to start looking forward to what 2017 may hold.

The complete schedule for 2017 won't be released to the public until spring, but we at least know who the Saints will play and where.

ROAD GAMES: Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Bucs, Miami Dolphins (in London), Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams

HOME GAMES: Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Bucs, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins

I bet you already circled some of the games you want to see. Having the Patriots and Lions come to the Superdome could be very interesting, with Tom Brady and Matt Stafford dueling it out with Drew Brees. The games against New York and Chicago could be blowouts, if both teams play like they did in 2016, but even those can be entertaining if you love offense.

If you're the type of fan that tries to go to at least one road game, you might want to buy a winter coat.

Games in Buffalo, Green Bay and London could be brutal if they fall on winter dates, and thankfully Minnesota plays indoors now. Still, a trip to Los Angeles or London could be a lot of fun, so you might want to make some travel plans.

The best way to wash the bitter taste of a losing season out of your mouth is to leave it behind and look to the future. At least now you can start thinking about 2017 and fantasizing about watching some wins.
