After 20 years of frustration, the New Orleans Saints, led by second-year coach Jim Mora clinched their first playoff berth by beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 44-34 at the Louisiana Superdome. It is also the first time in the team’s history that they posted a winning record, as the Saints’ best season previously was a pair of 8-8 seasons in 1979 and 1983. The Saints would go on to post a record of 12-3.
