The New Orleans Saints will play all four preseason games against AFC teams in 2017, taking the first two on the road and the second two games at home. 

For starters, the Saints will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in the first week (Aug. 10 to Aug. 14), then go all the way back to the West Coast for a game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2 (Aug. 17 to Aug. 21), making an appearance at the StubHub Center, the soccer stadium where the Chargers will be playing for the next two seasons. 

Then the Saints, who are bringing training camp to Metairie, will return to the Superdome for the final two weeks of the preseason. 

The Houston Texans, a frequent preseason partner of the Saints and the new occupant of the Greenbrier Resort's training facility, will play New Orleans in Week 3 (Aug. 24 to Aug. 27).

New Orleans then finishes up by hosting the Baltimore Ravens on either Aug. 31 or Sept. 1.
