With the NFL schedule release Wednesday night, the New Orleans Saints finally got a look at how their 2024 season will shake out.

Why it matters: Every season offers new hope.

Catch up quick: Local fans won't get a chance to actually see the Saints without hopping on a plane until late in the pre-season.

The pre-season schedule reflects a Saints' request that its first two games are on the West Coast to keep travel arrangements easy, | The Times-Picayune's Jeff Duncan reports.

  • Week 1 at Arizona Cardinals.
  • Week 2: Aug. 18 at 7pm at San Francisco 49ers. Broadcast on Fox.
  • Week 3 vs. the Tennessee Titans.

The regular schedule begins with a home stand against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Week 1: Sept. 8 at noon, vs. the Carolina Panthers. Broadcast on Fox.
  • Week 2: Sept. 15 at noon, at Dallas Cowboys. Broadcast on Fox.

Zoom in: The Saints joined the schedule release party with their own social media video.

The intrigue: The schedule accommodates Taylor Swift's three-night stand in the Caesars Superdome from Oct. 25-27.

  • The second leg of her Eras Tour begins earlier that month in Miami — but not until after the Saints play the Chiefs in Monday Night Football on Oct. 7, as Jonathan Barnes noted on X.
  • Will Swift make an appearance in Kansas City that night to see boyfriend Travis Kelce play the Saints?
  • Let the (celeb-watching) games begin.
