The New Orleans Saints are facing a fine and a loss of a draft pick for holding a post-game victory celebration with no face masks.

The NFL announced yesterday that the Saints would be fined $500,000 and lose their seventh-round draft pick next year for the locker-room party following a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 8.

The celebration was caught on camera and marked the second time this year the NFL has punished the Saints for failing to follow rules on mask-wearing. Sources say the Saints plan to appeal the decision.
