The New Orleans Saints have announced they will not play any games in the first quarter of the season at the Superdome, which reportedly escaped with minimal damage.
The New York Giants are scheduled to play the Saints in the Big Easy on October 3 but that game could be in jeopardy, or even moved to another city.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said about the chances of the Saints playing the Packers in AT&T Stadium, “It’s certainly possible. We’re having discussions. There are a lot of moving parts.”
