Last season the New Orleans Voodoo struggled to a 3-15 record and seemed to be in danger of not playing in 2015 amid ownership rumors. But the Voodoo are back for 2015 and are looking to bounce back from last seasons disaster. Here is a look at how the Voodoo are shaping up for 2015:

Schedule:

Week 1 vs Jacksonville

Week 2 vs Cleveland

Week 3 vs Orlando

Week 4 at Tampa Bay

Week 5 vs Philadelphia

Week 6 vs Spokane

Week 7 vs Arizona

Week 8 at Cleveland

Week 9 vs Jacksonville

Week 10 at Tampa Bay

Week 11 at Philadelphia

Week 12 vs Cleveland

Week 13 bye week

Week 14 at Orlando

Week 15 bye week

Week 16 at San Jose

Week 17 vs Tampa Bay

Week 18 at Las Vegas

Week 19 at Philadelphia

Week 20 at Jacksonville

Offense: Adam Kennedy- starting quarterback

Larry Beavers- Wide Receiver

Kyler Reed- Wide Receiver

Defense: Matt Hardison- Defensive End

Greg Reed- Defensive Back

Season Outlook:

The Voodoo now play in the American East division with the Philadelphia Soul and the Cleveland Gladiators.

Obviously it’s going to be a tough task to make the playoffs in 2015. Quarterback Adam Kennedy seems to be the bright spot. He came on during mid season last year and seemed to be the quarterback the Voodoo need.

When it comes to the schedule; the Voodoo have 11 games this year against teams that made the playoffs last year; including 3 against division rivals Philadelphia and Cleveland. They also have the standard 3 against the reloaded Jacksonville Sharks; who signed QB Tommy Grady.

The Voodoo are going to see Jacksonville in week 1 as well, so its important for the Voodoo to make a statement at home. Overall New Orleans look like a team in rebuilding- but then again they said that last year about Cleveland and they went 19-1 and to the Arena Bowl! Anything is possible but the Voodoo are going to need to make some moves to be a playoff team in 2015.

Prediction: 4-14
