New Orleans Saints explore playing home games outdoors at LSU’s Tiger Stadium

The New Orleans Saints have begun discussions with LSU about holding future home games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, a team spokesman said.

“LSU has been gracious and enthusiastic regarding hosting our future games and we very much appreciate their partnership,” said Greg Bensel, the Saints’ senior vice president for communications. “We have also discussed the possibility of moving our home games to LSU with the NFL and they are aware of our exploring this option.

“Obviously, our overwhelming preference is to play our games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with partial fan attendance, but there has been no indication from the city on when, or if, this might be approved.”

The Saints have played three of eight scheduled regular-season home games in the Superdome this season with no ticketed fans in attendance. The few hundred in attendance consisted primarily of privately invited family members of players, coaches or

New Orleans Saints see improvements, but not enough to post victory over Green Bay

The New Orleans Saints did some good things on offense and defense against Green Bay. They just didn’t do enough of them.

There were enough loose ends for the Saints that they couldn’t produce a victory Sunday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where the Packers posted a 37-30 victory that was the second consecutive loss for New Orleans (1-2).
