This Day in New Orleans Saints History - September 25

A look back at 50 seasons of Saints history


On September 25, 2006 the Louisiana Superdome reopened following the damage it suffered a year earlier due to Hurricane Katrina.

The reopening featured a performance by U2 and Green Day and the National Anthem performed by Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint.

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Atlanta Falcons 23-3 on Monday Night Football.

Former Saints safety Steve Gleason blocks a punt in the first quarter that is recovered by former cornerback Curtis DeLoatch for touchdown that sparked the Saints win.

Watch the Saints documentary about the game, "The Saints are Coming."
