They are there for the first game of the 2010-2011 NFL season between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings, which will be televised tonight by NBC.

“Nightly,” “Today” and Weather Channel’s “Wake Up with Al” will originate from NOLA, with MSNBC and CNBC delivering live reports from around the city all day.
