Highlights, schedules and rosters from every New Orleans Saints NFL Season. From the very beginning in 1967 through the years of Archie Manning, Jim Mora and the Dome Patrol, Jim Haslett and Katrina and right up to Drew Brees, Sean Payton and the historic Super Bowl 44 win over the Colts.
Along with Saints schedules and yearly highlights we have tons of pictures of Saints players in our New Orleans Saints Image Gallery and up-to-date All-Time New Orleans Saints Leaders in Offensive and Defensive Statistical categories. Here at New Orleans Saints History we also have many New Orleans Saints Yearbooks in PDF format. We've even been adding articles and New Orleans Saints Videos.

The First Playoff Road Win in New Orleans Saints History!
Before last night, The New Orleans Saints had never won a playoff game on the road. Prior to the 2013 NFL season, the Saints had played a total of 14 playoff games, 5 on the road. And every one of those had been a loss.
But with the 26-24 win over the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, the monkey is off the back of the Saints.
Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown and newly acquired kicker Shayne Graham kicked 3 field goals, including the game winner with 3 seconds left on the clock to edge the New Orleans Saints over the Phiadelphia Eagles to advance to the next round of the NFC playoffs.
For the most part, the Saints defense kept the #1 ranked Eagles high-powered offense contained with 2 sacks and key stops at critical times. Lesean McCoy, who led the NFL in rushing this year was held to 77 yards on the ground and Quarterback Nick Foles had only 195 yards passing.
The Saints will no face the Seattle Seahawks Saturday Night, January 11 in Seattle.
Saints are in the Playoffs!
Sunday, the New Orleans Saints put on a brilliant offensive display as Drew Brees passed for 381 yards, 4 TDs while running for another as they clinched the #6 NFC playoff spot with a 42-17 win over Tampa Bay.
The Saints now travel to Philadelphia for a Saturday Night Game to open the 2013 Playoffs.
