Saints game could be moved to Indianapolis due to Hurricane Delta
Playing home games out of New Orleans due to hurricanes is an all too familiar reality for the Saints who might just have to do so once again due to Hurricane Delta.
Currently scheduled to host the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football, the Saints are working with the NFL on a contingency plan as they continue to track Delta’s progress through the Gulf of Mexico.
One option is to move the game to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis which is vacant during a week five road game for the Colts.
Delta is expected to make landfall in Louisiana or Texas on Friday.
One source later told ESPN the game is not expected to be moved, but no official word yet.
Even if the Saints are able to play at the Superdome, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell has denied a request from the team to allow fans at the game.
Instead, it’ll be limited to 750 family members of players, coaches, and staff as the Saints target an October 25th return date for fans against the Carolina Panthers.
