NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — The New Orleans Saints are being just that, Saints.

On the day that the NFL schedule is set to drop announcing which teams they will be competing against this season, the team decided to take a different approach this year.

The video opens with the normal Who Dat fanfare: “You aren’t welcome here” as fans are seen screaming in the Dome.

In a twist, the Saints put aside their competitive differences showing food being delivered to health care workers across the nation.

The video ends reminding fans that New Orleans has seen hard times too, and amid the coronavirus pandemic, everyone in the NFL is on the same team.

With one last quick-witted sting, the Saints wish their competitors a safe and healthy season, saying they look forward to beating them in the games to come.
