NFL Preseason Schedule 2012: Saints, Falcons, Panthers And Buccaneers

The 2012 NFL preseason schedule is out for every team, including what figures to once again be a highly competitive NFC South. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints will once again be favorites, though the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers should all be improved.

The Saints kick off the preseason with a Sunday, Aug. 5 bout against the Arizona Cardinals. Afterwards, they head to Foxboro to take on the Super Bowl runner-up New England Patriots. The Atlanta Falcons travel twice to Florida to take on the Dolphins and the Jaguars, while the Carolina Panthers head further north to take on the Jets and the Steelers in consecutive weeks.

Here's the preseason schedule for the entire NFC South:

New Orleans Saints: Arizona Cardinals (NFL Network), at New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, at Tennessee Titans

Atlanta Falcons: Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, at Miami Dolphins, at Jacksonville Jaguars

Carolina Panthers: Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins, at New York Jets, at Pittsburgh Steelers
