New Orleans Saints: Top 3 road games to attend in 2020

The New Orleans Saints have one of the more exciting road schedules in recent years for the 2020 season. The following three road games are worth making a trip for based on city, match-ups and local interests.

This year’s NFL schedule release is unlike any before. The league, and fans alike, are in a wait-and-see scenario. Only time will tell if dates hold true, if fans are in attendance or if other restrictions will be implemented. Here are three must-see road games for the New Orleans Saints.

Tampa Bay

Or as some are now calling it, Tompa Bay. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady joined the Bucs this off-season so expect interest in the team to rise within Tampa. Ticket prices may not be as favorable as they have been in the past but the price of admission will be worth it.

It’s not often fans get to see two of the all-time greats face-off against one another.

It’s no secret that Tampa has beautiful weather year-round and this is a fan-favorite road game for the Black & Gold. With plenty of kid-friendly attractions around the city, this is a game to bring
the family to.

A few quick ideas; Big Cat Rescue (owned by now world-famous Carol Baskins), Tampa’s Zooquarium and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Last season Saints fans took over Raymond James Stadium but this year may look different. Either way, if you want to see a win and enjoy a beautiful city, this is the game for you.

Las Vegas

Vegas Baby! Need I say more? Leave the kids home for this one. In Vegas’ first year with an NFL franchise, the Saints were one of the few lucky teams to draw a road game. This week two Monday Night Football match-up will be a hot ticket on the strip.

Among a slew of young talent taken by the Raiders in the 2020 NFL Draft is Amik Robertson; a cornerback out of Louisiana Tech and nearby Thibodaux High School. While there will be no rooting for the Raiders, it’s always fun to see a local kid make a name for himself in the NFL.

Count me in the number traveling to Las Vegas for this game. Fingers crossed attendance restrictions allow this to happen.

Denver

Football in the snow anyone? While the weather won’t be as enjoyable as trips to Tampa Bay or Las Vegas, the city of Denver has become wildly popular in the last few years. This 2019 Thrillist article ranks Denver as a top 20 U.S. city to spend the weekend in.

Denver’s stout defense vs. the Saints’ high-powered offense should generate some buzz for this week twelve match-up. Additionally, Mile High Stadium is considered one of the more iconic stadiums on the schedule.
