  • Saints to host Falcons on Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving tables across south Louisiana this November will be filled with dirty bird jokes. Last season, the Saints only played two games in primetime.

We will have to wait a few more hours before the full 2018 National Football League schedule is released, but parts of it are starting to leak out.

The NFL schedule doesn't officially come out until tonight, but The New Orleans Advocate reports the Saints will host their biggest rival in a prime-time, Thanksgiving game.

The league announced Monday night games will start 15 minutes earlier than in past seasons, at 7:15 p.m. CT instead of 7:30 p.m.

The Saints last season won the NFC South title and have a number of high-profile opponents on the 2018 schedule with the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys among them.
