The New Orleans Saints’ 2020 schedule is full of optimism and intriguing matchups, and I’m here to predict every outcome for the 2020 season.

As I predict these games, I am attempting to be as realistic as possible while also considering current rosters, organizational drama, time, and location of the games. Also, we must realize this team typically has a few losses that are unpredictable.

Did we think the 13-3 Saints would drop a game to the Falcons last season? There are obviously going to be games that you aren’t going to agree with, but I did my best to make sure that everything at least makes sense and can be historically backed.

Many different factors can obviously play into the results of these games such as injury or suspensions, but I will consider that most of the key players will be healthy and active for these matchup predictions.

That said, the team apparently has one of the “easier” schedules in the NFC South, but with games against the Chiefs, 49ers, Eagles, and Bucs, the Saints will have their hands full this season. Will they be able to repeat the immense success of a season ago though?

Without further adieu, here’s a breakdown of every game of the 2020 regular season.
