Hundreds of fans greeted the New Orelans Saints at Atlantic Aviation MSY when the team arrived back from Seattle at 1:30 A.M Sunday morning.
The Saints season came to an end Saturday afternoon after a 23-15 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink field in the NFC Divisional Playoff round.
Fans lined up along Boeing Lane's entrance to the airport and cheered as Saints players, coaches and staff departed the airport.
Below are tweets by players and fans at the airport:
