Saints Sure Do Get A Lot Of Prime Time Games At Home

Monday Night loves the Superdome, almost as much as Sunday and Thursday.

Pat Yasinkas points out the Saints have been very good on Monday games over the past four seasons:

Home team in CAPS.

The untrained eye may not note the word New Orleans only appears once in non-CAPS. Look again!

Last year they also hosted a Saturday night game. This year they hosted the Vikings in week one's Thursday night and have a Sunday night game at home.

The issue isn't that the Saints get to play in national games; they're a compelling, popular, and excellent team. It's that they've gotten almost all of their recent big games at home. The NFL has finally provided some balance though, with New Orleans' two Monday Night games being played on the road (San Fran this weekend and Atlanta in week 16). This Monday will be the Saints' first prime time road game since a December 11, 2008 loss at Soldier Field.
