Posted By on Thu, Apr 24, 2014 at 10:38 AM

The 2014 New Orleans Saints schedule was released yesterday. Within each schedule, typically NFL teams break things down into four sections. Being that there's 16 games, here's a breakdown into four sections of the 2013 records of each of the Saints opponents this season.

Saints start the season at Atlanta on September 7.


Section One

Atlanta Falcons
2013 record - 4-12

Cleveland Browns
2013 record - 4-12

Minnesota Vikings
2013 record - 5-10-1

Dallas Cowboys
2013 record - 8-8

Total win loss record for section one - 21-42-1

Section Two

Tampa Bay
2013 record - 4-12

Detroit Lions
2013 record - 7-9

Green Bay Packers
2013 record - 8-7-1

Carolina Panthers
2013 record - 12-4

Total win loss record for section two - 31-32-1

Section Three

San Francisco
2013 record - 12-4

Cincinnati Bengals
2013 record - 11-5

Baltimore Ravens
2013 record - 8-8

Pittsburgh Steelers
2013 record - 8-8

Total win loss record for section three - 39-25

Section Four

Carolina Panthers
2013 record - 12-4

Chicago Bears
2013 record - 8-8

Atlanta Falcons
2013 record - 4-12

Tampa Bay
2013 record - 4-12

Total record for section four - 28-36

Total 2013 record for all Saints opponents - 119-135-2

Now that we know how the Saints opponents finished last year and we see that according the numbers, the schedule for the Who Dats looks pretty good on paper. Please remember before any of you start booking flights and hotels in Phoenix for Super Bowl L, all these teams got better during the off-season — just as the Saints did. On paper, things look pretty good for the Saints, but keep things within reason before believing that going 16-0 will be a simple thing to do.

Misc. Information

• The Saints have four games against new coaches this season (Cleveland, Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Detroit).
• 3 out of the last 4 games of the 2014 season are against division opponents.
• Saints play 4 teams with 2013 records above .500 (Green Bay, Carolina, San Francisco & Cincinnati).
