With Hurricane Delta weakening and heading west of New Orleans, the Saints have decided to stay in New Orleans and not evacuate to Indianapolis on Thursday. Team officials informed the staff during a meeting earlier tonight.— Jeff Duncan (@JeffDuncan_) October 7, 2020
League officials were exploring the idea of moving Monday night’s game to Lucas Oil Stadium, but that isn’t looking likely now. Controlling COVID in 53-man locker rooms has proven difficult, so the last thing these teams need is another obstacle that may expose them to further risk. We’re happy that the city of New Orleans has some good news to celebrate.
Saints come into this game 2-2, a full game behind the division-leading Buccaneers. The only thing that can make this week better is if Sean Payton can get his team back on track and come away with a win at home.
