NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - ESPN will let every Saints fan relive the thrilling reopening of the Superdome in 2006 against the Falcons following Hurricane Katrina.

The game will air April 6 at 7 p.m. as part of the Monday Night Football Classic series.

The Sept. 25, 2006 matchup featured the historic blocked punt by Steve Gleason that has been immortalized as a statue named “Rebirth” that stands outside the dome.

The Black and Gold went on to get the 23-3 win.
