The New Orleans Saints have announced their 2021 preseason schedule presented by SeatGeek.

With the National Football League’s new 17 regular season game, three preseason contest format, the Saints will open their 2021 preseason slate on the road followed by the final two contests to be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Two opponents reside in the AFC and one in the NFC.

To start their 2021 preseason slate, the Saints will play the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, August 14 at M&T Bank Stadium. Kickoff is 6:00 p.m. CT. The Saints have lost all five preseason meetings to the Ravens, but have a 2-5 record against Baltimore in the regular season, the most recent a 24-23 win at Baltimore on October 21, 2018, where former QB Drew Brees threw his 500th career touchdown pass.

In Preseason Week Two, the Saints will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, August 23 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with a nationally televised contest at 7:00 p.m. CT. The preseason series is tied 1-1 with New Orleans leading the regular season series 5-2, their most recent meeting a 13-6 win at Jacksonville on October 13, 2019.

The Saints will close out the preseason at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday, August 28 at 7:00 P.M. CT, prior to the final cutdown to 53-man rosters on the following Tuesday, August 31. It will be the fifth consecutive time (2020 preseason was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic) that the teams have closed out their preseason at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints have a 5-1 mark against the Cardinals in the preseason, 15-15 in the regular season and have captured the only playoff meeting between the clubs in the 2009 postseason.

The Baltimore and Arizona games will be broadcast regionally on the Gray Communications regional network of stations (listing at the bottom of release), available in the New Orleans area on FOX 8 WVUE.
