Four months from now the Saints are scheduled to kick-off the 2020 season in the Mercedes Benz Superdome against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. But, how much of an issue will the coronavirus still be?
Saints head coach Sean Payton joined CBS Sports and sounded confident about season starting on time, but wasn’t sure if there would be anyone in the stands.
“I think the biggest challenge obviously is the stadiums and fans”, said Payton. “Just myself personally, I think that would be a much more difficult challenge here as we look to kick-off the season in September. So, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the games being started on time in a much more controlled environment. And, the premium on television in watching the games, much like were doing now with a lot of different things; that would be the vehicle in this 2020 season.”
