After finishing a disappointing 7-9 in 2012, a season in which they played without their suspended head coach, Sean Payton, the New Orleans Saints will be looking to rebound, and become not only a playoff team, but a Super Bowl contender as well.

New Orleans opens their preseason schedule on Friday, August 9, when they host the Kansas City Chiefs, before starting their regular season schedule on Sunday, September 8, when they host the Atlanta Falcons.

Emory Hunt, of Football Gameplan has a preview of this year's Saints.
