They wound up winning the title anyway, with Carolina (11-5) losing its regular season finale at Atlanta.

But Saints return man Tommylee Lewis was stripped by Tampa Bay's Josh Robinson and the fumble was recovered by Isaiah Johnson, who scooped it up and scored from the 7. Tampa Bay then followed with a 51-yard drive in 10 plays and a 42-yard field goal by Patrick Murray to get within 24-23 with 4:31 to play in the game. The New Orleans finished 22 of 30 for 245 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Ingram and Kamara had already combined for 182 yards from scrimmage. That led to the punt to the 5-yard line, which Winston converted into a massive opportunity. It drove 92 yards in 13 plays and took up almost seven minutes for a touchdown and 24-20 lead with 7:07 to go in the fourth quarter at Raymond James Stadium.

After the Bucs had taken a 24-20 lead and pinned the Saints on their 8-yard line following the kickoff, the Brees-led offense effectively sliced through Tampa Bay's defense.

While Winston's strike went to Chris Godwin and not Evans, it did, however, break Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino's record for most touchdown passes before a player's 24th birthday.

Raiders fire Del Rio, reportedly courting Jon Gruden
Earlier on Sunday, it was reported that Gruden was vetting coordinators and former players to take spots on his coaching staff. This was Del Rio's second try as a head coach after spending nine seasons with the Jaguars from 2003-2011.

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

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan picked up his 13th sack of the season, on a play that ended the first half.

The rookie's 7-yard TD run on the Saints' first offensive possession made it 14-7. The Saints stopped one Tampa drive when rookie safety Marcus Williams made his third interception of the season and on another when linebacker Craig Robertson picked off Winston. Murray's extra-point attempt gave the Bucs a 20-17 lead.
