If you are a New Orleans Saints fan, then you know they are often referred to as the Black And Gold. The team either wears a white jersey with black numbers or a black jersey with gold numbers but the one thing that has never changed is the gold helmet seen above until now.

That's right Saints fans, for the first time since 1969, the New Orleans Saints players will be putting on a brand new colored helmet for one game this season. The Saints will put up the gold helmets with the black fleur-de-lis on them and suit up with a brand new helmet which we think looks awesome. Check it out.

The helmet the players will wear will be all black with the Saint's signature fleur-de-lis in gold instead of black. Also on the helmet will be a bunch of tiny fleur-de-lis across the top of the helmet going from front to back through the center making it look like a big stripe.

So when will the Saints be wearing this new helmet? It was reported that they will wear the new helmet in week number four of this 2022 season when they take on the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately Saints fans, that game will not be in New Orleans.

The game will be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London England with an early morning 8:30 am starting time and will be televised on the NFL Network.

So do you like the new helmet or are you more of the traditional gold helmet type of Saints fan?  Well if I am being honest, I am kind of really digging the new black helmet and hope they wear it more than just one time.
