The New Orleans Saints have won Superbowl LI for the first time since the 1994 season, and they’re going back to the Big Apple.
It was a season that marked the first Super Bowl victory for the NFL in New Orleans, and a time in which the Saints won a record-setting four consecutive games to end their four-year playoff drought.
Saints fans in the Dome, however, will be disappointed to learn that the team will not be heading back to New Orleans to play in the Superdome, which opened in 1999.
The Saints will instead go to Chicago, where they’ll be the NFL’s first home team since 2004.
They’ll be hosting the NFL Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 2.
“We’ll be taking some time away from New Orleans and focusing on the Chicago Bears,” said head coach Sean Payton, who was a former quarterback and offensive coordinator in New England, Kansas City and Washington.
“It’s a great opportunity to do some things that we haven’t been able to do before, but we’re excited about it.” “

The Super Bowl will be held at Soldier Field in Chicago and will be televised on Fox.
2: It will be the Saints’ first trip to the dome since the team moved to Chicago in 2003, but it’s not their first time there.
The team hosted a Super Bowl there in 2009 and played in a rematch in 2016, but that was the first of two consecutive Super Bowls held in Chicago.
The New York Giants won Super Tuesday that year, but the teams did not meet again until the 2016 season, which was also the first in New York.
The first time the Saints traveled to Chicago was to play the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, and it was a memorable game for both teams.
The Falcons won 24-21 in the second half of the game.
The 2017 Saints will play their first game in Chicago on Sunday.
The next game will be against the Packers on Dec. 1, followed by a showdown against the Jets on Jan. 6.
The NFL will also broadcast the NFC Championship Game in New Jersey, where the Saints and NFC East champion Washington Redskins will meet for the second time in the playoffs.
The league will broadcast two NFC Championship Games in Dallas and Minnesota, which the Rams and Vikings lost to the Saints in the first round of the playoffs, respectively.
The NFC Championship game will also be shown in Chicago, but fans can watch the game on Fox without paying.
6: The 2017 season is the first since the Cowboys went into free agency in 2017 and re-signed Jason Garrett.
The Cowboys were the last team in the NFL to win a Superbowl title in 1999, when the team lost to Arizona in Super Sunday.
Eight years later, the Saints have yet to win the Superbell.
They’ve gone 8-1 since then.
The 2016 season marked the start of a seven-game winning streak for the Saints, who went 7-3 in their first eight games.
The season was also notable for Garrett, who won his first Superbowl in New Mexico, but he had to retire after the season.
The final game of the regular season was a 38-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFC championship game.
Garrett will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.
The Rams and Falcons will play in Superbowl XLVII in 2018.
New Orleans hosted Super Bowl XXIX in 2000, which featured the Falcons beating the Patriots 34-27 in Superdrome.
In 2016, New Orleans lost to Seattle in Super Week, which set the record for the longest playoff losing streak in NFL history.
New England beat New Orleans in Superbowl XLVIII in 2019, but lost to Atlanta in Super Day.
The Patriots won their first Superbell since 2009 in the 2019 season.
The 2018 season was the last time the NFC East was split between the Packers and Lions, but they were split once again in 2018 with the Packers winning the NFC North and the Lions winning the division.
In 2018, New England lost to Dallas in Super Tuesday, but won the NFC South.
The Giants lost their first championship to the Patriots in Super bowl XLV, but then won the Super Bowl against the Falcons in the 2016 NFC title game.
The Packers lost to New York in Super Thursday, but defeated the Rams in Super Friday.
The Cardinals won Super Thursday in 2017, but beat the Packers in Super Saturday.
