Brian Milne recovers Rams fumble to give the Saints their first ever playoff win.

Almost 35 years of frustration and disappointment was removed with 1 play in the December 30, 2000 playoff game against the Rams.

The Saints were frantically trying to hold off a Rams comeback that had just put 3 touchdowns on the board in 7 minutes and looked primed to add another as the Saints lined up to punt the ball away with 1:43 left.

But the punt went right through Az-Zahir Hakim hands as he tried to make fair catch. Back-up fullback Brian Milne immediately covered up the fumble. The Saints ran out the clock to give them the first ever Saints playoff victory after 4 previous trips to post-season play.
