Saints Rematch Possible For Season Opener

Posted by cjsiewert on March 20, 2010 – 7:48 am

The Vikings might have an opportunity to begin their 2010 season and push for Super Bowl XLV in the very same place and against the very same team that ended their 2009 season.

NFL Owners’ Meetings begin this Sunday in Orlando, Florida and it’s expected the NFL will unveil its plans for the season-opening Thursday night (September 9) game, which typically pits the defending Super Bowl champions against a compelling opponent.

There has been speculation for over a month that the Vikings and Saints would meet on September 9 and the Star Tribune’s Chip Scoggins mentioned the possibility again on Friday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter also tweeted on the matter, stating : “It would be an enormous upset if the NFL’s season-opening Thursday night game on Sept. 9 were not Minnesota at Saints.”

We’ll have more information on this and other topics covered at the NFL Owners’ Meetings, so be sure to stay tuned to
