12 Wins 4 Loses 1 playoff loss
Coach: Jim Mora
First Round Draft Pick: Vaughn Dunbar Running Back Indiana

Once again it was the defense that made the difference for the New Orleans Saints this season. The “Dome Patrol” had all four starting linebackers-Rickey Jackson, Sam Mills, Vaughn Johnson and Pat Swilling-in the Pro Bowl. Defensive end Wayne Martin also began to make his presence known.
On the other end of the ball rookie Vaughn Dunbar was the team leading rusher with 565 yards. While it was Eric Martin, who for the sixth straight year, led the team in receiving. He had 68 catches for 1041 yards and 5 TDs.
The “Cajun Cannon”, Bobby Hebert emerged as the starter and had a pretty good year. 422 attempts-249 completions-59% completed-3287 yards and 19 TDs. Morten Andersen scored 120 points (tied for first in NFC)-33 of 34 extra points and 29 of 34 field goals.
My memory of the playoff game against Philadelphia was one of disbelief. The Saints practically dominated for 3 quarters, then absolutely fell apart in the 4th. Philly scored 29 unanswered points to win 36-20.
