Last week, as a tropical storm was moving toward New Orleans, the Saints packed their stuff up a day early and went to Chicago.
It worked — the Saints won. And so they’ll be doing it again this week.
Per a league source, the Saints will leave on Friday instead of Saturday for the Boston area.
The main factor is the distance to be traveled, but the Saints were also influenced by the fact that traveling early last week helped the team show that they can play as well away from the Superdome.
If they win again, don’t be surprised if they keep traveling a day early.
