Pat Swilling Sacks Jeff Hostetler
Typical scene from the days of the Dome Patrol. Pat Swilling leads a ferocious pass rush as the Dome Patrol chalks up another sack in a 1988 game against the New York Giants. Swilling ended up with 3 sacks that game.
For the 1988 season, New Orleans finished with a 10-6 record as the Saints defense was just beginning to come into it’s own. That year they ranked #4 in points given up. Swilling was tied with Rickey Jackson for the team lead for sacks. They each had 7 and the defense had 31 as whole.
