Next up, the Saints travel to Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts to take on the New England Patriots. After that, they'll return home to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and play host to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

A week later, a cross conference rival opponent will travel to New Orleans, as the Saints face off in their traditional preseason battle with the Houston Texans. The prime-time contest will be nationally televised on CBS on Saturday, August 25th.

The Saints hit the road a week later for their final tune-up, traveling to Nashville for a game against the Tennessee Titans.
