It won’t have nearly the same stakes, but the New Orleans Saints, still smarting from an N.F.C. Championship game loss that hinged on a blown pass interference call, will get a shot at revenge against the Los Angeles Rams when the teams face each other in Los Angeles on Sept. 15.
That game, which will undoubtedly be the most anticipated matchup of Week 2 in the N.F.L., was one of 255 matchups announced by the league on Wednesday as it continues to try to turn the unveiling of its schedule into a prime time event.
The N.F.L. had previously announced that the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers would face off in the league’s season opener on Sept. 5. It will be the 197th meeting of the longtime rivals, and the game will serve as the league’s nod to this being its 100th season.
Beyond the Saints-Rams rematch, there are more than a few games that seem worth circling.
