2021 NFL schedule: Week 1 Packers vs. Saints to be played in Jacksonville

Syndication: Florida Times-Union Bob Self via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The New Orleans Saints will have a new (temporary) home for their Week 1 matchup against the Green Bay Packers — TIAA Bank Field will host the two teams on Sunday, September 12th while the city of New Orleans continues to recover from Hurricane Ida.

The game will kick off at 4:25pm EST.

The Saints had reportedly shown interest in playing the game in Dallas, but the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium was unavailable due to a concert scheduled in the venue later that week.

Also, the league wants NFL games played at NFL stadiums, nixing closer arrangements at college stadiums.

So... we’re pulling for the Saints, right? We gotta pull for the Saints.

Geaux Saints.
