It's finally here, Saints fans! The 2019 season officially begins this Friday night with the Saints' first preseason game.

The Saints will host the Vikings in the Superdome in the Big Easy Friday night at 7:00pm.  The Saints will be looking to prove that they are one of the premier teams in the league.

They will also be looking to put behind the catastrophe that happened to them last season in the NFC Championship game that cost them a trip to the Superbowl.

The Saints and Vikings game will be televised locally on KPLC TV.  If you have Suddenlink cable, that will be on Channel 9.
