Saints Pound Buccaneers 42-17 to Secure Playoff Berth

Sean Gardner

The New Orleans Saints gave their fans an impressive display, and secured a playoff berth with a victory at home over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Drew Brees became the first quarterback in Saints history to throw three touchdowns of 40+ yards in the same game, while putting up an NFL-record third consecutive (and fourth total) season with over 5,000 passing yards. Jimmy Graham ended the game one TD shy of the record for most touchdowns in a single season in NFL history, but he'll hopefully get plenty of opportunities to score as the Saints fight their way through the playoffs in January.
