The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers won’t be playing at the Superdome in Week 1 after Hurricane Ida battered the city over the weekend.

Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed the team is planning to be away from New Orleans for potentially the entire month of September, per Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com, meaning the season-opening showdown with the Packers will need to be moved out of the city and to a neutral location.

New Orleans is still without power.

The Week 1 contest between the Packers and Saints is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 12 at 3:25 p.m. CT.

The Saints have been operating out of the Dallas-Forth Worth area since evacuating New Orleans on Saturday. AT&T Stadium, the home of the Cowboys, looks like the best bet for a neutral location for Week 1. The Cowboys are on the road in Week 1 and there are no events scheduled at the stadium on Sept. 12.
