Saints, Packers to play in Jacksonvil­le


The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints will open the season at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonvil­le, Florida, the NFL said Wednesday.

The Saints were forced out of New Orleans over the weekend by Hurricane Ida, which hit Louisiana with devastatin­g force. While Caesars Superdome was not badly damaged, as it was by Hurricane Katrina 16 years ago, it may take New Orleans weeks to recover from Ida, which knocked out power to more than 1 million people in Louisiana and Mississipp­i.
