New Orleans Saints 14, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13

"We won the NFC South, but we still have work to do", said head coach Sean Payton after the game.

With the Saints leading 24-23, a New Orleans punt was downed at Tampa Bay's 5-yard line. It was outgained by the Buccaneers, 455-323, and punt returner Tommylee Lewis coughed up a costly fumble that Tampa Bay returned for a 7-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

New Orleans struggled at times in every unit. That led to the punt to the 5-yard line, which Winston converted into a massive opportunity.

Alvin Kamara scored on a 106-yard kickoff return and had a second touchdown rushing for the Saints, who took a 24-20 lead midway through the fourth quarter when Zach Line caught a 3-yard TD pass from Drew Brees.

Godwin has seven receptions for 111 yards.




The Saints failed on an attempted fake field goal when kicker Wil Lutz was tackled one yard short of the first down.

The Pro Bowlers were already the only teammates in National Football League history with 1,300-plus scrimmage yards & more than 10 touchdowns in same season.

Patrick Murray, whose missed an extra point in the second quarter was the difference on the scoreboard when Winston launched the winning drive, made a 42-yard field goal to help the Bucs pull within 24-23 with four minutes left.

The Saints went up, 14-7, on a 7-yard touchdown run by Kamara to close a 65-yard drive in six plays.

And they still showed big-play ability on defense with two interceptions by rookie safety Marcus Williams and an interception by linebacker Craig Robertson. He was stopped initially, but second and third efforts got him across.
