Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints looks to pass during the first half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on November 08, 2020 in Tampa, Florida.

The announcement came this morning from the NFL. The New Orleans Saints were set to open their season this weekend at home. It’ll still be considered a home game, but the Saints instead will host the Green Bay Packers here in Florida.

Hurricane Ida forced the change as clean up efforts continue after the storm tore through Louisiana this week. The game will take place at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville Sunday, September 12.

Saints fans who have season tickets will get priority to tickets for the game. More on that will be announced tomorrow, according to Channel 8.
