Much to the delight of all, the 2013 NFL Preseason officially began Sunday with the Cowboys-Dolphins Hall of Fame Game. The Saints will face off Friday, August 9th against the Kansas City Chiefs (7PM CST). The game will be in New Orleans, and you can expect the Dome to be extremely well-represented with beautiful Black & Gold.

Preseason usually means ‘diddly poo’ for most, in terms of actually counting. However, there are always a number of things to look forward to, especially for the Saints. We’ll look at a few said points of  ‘What to Watch For’ categories, but first, here’s the full schedule for August.

Aug. 9 — vs. Kansas City, 7 p.m.

Aug. 16 — vs. Oakland, 7 p.m.

Aug. 25 — at Houston, 3 p.m. (nationally televised on Fox)

Aug. 29 — at Miami, 6:30 p.m.

If you’re local, you should be able to catch these games on CST (Cox Sports) or through WDSU/WWL coverage.
