The New Orleans Saints will, once again, travel across the pond to play a regular season game. But this time, the game will be played in Frankfurt, Germany.

According to a report, the Saints will be playing the Patriots as a part of the NFL’s international series which has expanded to England, Mexico, and now Germany.

This news was broken by BILD reporter Max Schrader; however, this has not been confirmed by NFL officials. The official schedule release is still set for Thursday, May 12.

Schrader also reported that the game will likely be played on either Nov. 12 or Nov. 19. The other date will be reserved for a German matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears.

This is the second consecutive year that the Saints will be playing in an NFL International game. Last year, the Saints played the Minnesota Vikings in London, England. The game resulted in a 28-25 Vikings victory.

The game will reportedly take place in Deutsche Bank Park, the home stadium of Frankfort FC.
