From the 1988 game against the Detroit Lions at the Pontiac Silver Dome, Hall of Fame Linebacker Rickey Jackson had 4 sacks – 1 a safety of Lions quarterback Chuck Long – in the 22-14 New Orleans Saints win. Fellow Dome Patrol member Vaughan Johnson added another to give the Saints a total of 5 on the day. The victory was the second of what would be a 7 game-winning streak that season as the Saints would finish with 10 wins overall but would fail to make the playoffs.
Jackson would share the team’s sack lead with Pat Swilling. Both finished with 7 on the year.


I've been following the Saints since a kid in the 70s watching the likes of Archie Manning and Tommy Myers.
We may not have as grandiose a history as some NFL teams, but there are scores of memories the New Orleans Saints have given to their fans and I have done my best to record them here at New Orleans Saints History.
