New Orleans has been named a finalist to host Super Bowl LII in 2018, according to the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation.
The New Orleans Saints organization and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation will partner in making the official bid which, if awarded, would be the city's 11th Super Bowl and coincide with New Orleans' Tri-centennial that year.
The New Orleans Saints are still undefeated, after their 31-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday at home in the Superdome.
The Arizona Cardinals spent five minutes and forty-seven seconds marching down the field on the first possession of the game.
It was the only time they would score.
In a dramatic turnaround from last season, it was the Saints young defense who stood up to make the big plays, keeping Arizona off the field and giving quarterback Drew Brees and company the space to work.
Garrett Hartley’s game-clinching 27-yard field goal with five seconds left capped a wild Sunday night in Tampa Bay and sent the New Orleans Saints home with a win over the Buccaneers, 16-14.
It took the Saints just over a minute to drive 54 yards back down the field, after Tampa Bay’s own missed field goal, to set Hartley up to make the kick. The team was down by one, thanks to an earlier missed kick, and the points they gave back trying and failing to score a one-yard touchdown with just seconds to go in the first half.
The New Orleans Saints beat the Atlanta Falcons at home in the Superdome Sunday afternoon, in a rollicking game that came down to the wire, as many games between these two rivals often do.
The Falcons offense, taking advantage of an invigorated but still-shaky Saints secondary, marched down the field with time expiring, but rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro tipped Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan’s fourth-down bullet with less than a minute to play, and Roman Harper intercepted it in the end zone.
