Sean Payton will be at the Saints game Sunday Night! No, his suspension was not overturned... but he'll be at the game. Why?

 

Drew Brees, amid an 0-4 start for the New Orleans Saints, will try for an NFL record 48th straight game with a touchdown pass on Sunday night, against his old team the San Diego Chargers. And get this, Sean Payton will be in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Payton, suspended interim head coach Joe Vitt, and GM Mickey Loomis who are all under suspension have been granted special permission by the commissioner and will be allowed to attend the game on Sunday as Brees attempts to break Johnny Unitas' long standing touchdown streak record. Brees made the request to the NFL offices. Sean Payton will be able to be in the Superdome but will have to watch from a special viewing area, far and away from the team.
