The New Orleans Saints will play three nationally televised games in prime time during the 2008 season, including two on Monday night and one on Thursday night.
The team will open its season at the Superdome for the first time since 2004, according to the team schedule released April 15 by the NFL. And, for the first time since 1999, they have three home games in three weeks.
Both Monday night games are at home — Oct. 6 against the Minnesota Vikings and Nov. 24 against the Green Bay Packers. The Saints play the Bears in Chicago on Dec. 11 in a Thursday night game.
The Saints also will be the home team in an Oct. 26 game against the San Diego Chargers at London’s Wembley Stadium.
After the Sept. 7 opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Saints play at Washington and Denver, then return home games against San Francisco on Sept. 28, Minnesota on Oct. 6 and Oakland on Oct. 12.
