This upcoming season provides the New Orleans Saints with an opportunity to get some revenge for losses they had in 2011.

The first big match up of the season is week 4 at the Green Bay Packers.  These two teams started off the 2011 season in a huge way combining for 76 points.

There were also two kick returns, one by rookie Patrick Cobb(Green Bay)for 108 yards, and a punt return by Darren Sproles(New Orleans) for 72 yards.

Green Bay took the early lead with three touchdown passes by QB Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter.

But Drew Brees, who also threw three touchdowns, and the Saints would scratch their way back by the end of the game, losing on a failed fourth down run by rookie Mark Ingram.

This was a tough loss for the Saints, and one of the most exciting games of the 2011 season, and I don’t expect neither the Saints nor the Packers to disappoint in 2012.

Another game the entire Who Dat Nation, including myself,  is dying to see is the week 12 rematch against the San Francisco 49ers, which also featured a boat-load of scoring the last time these teams met.
