The Saints are the No. 4 seed.

"We didn't finish the game the way we would've liked to have".

The Saints didn't end the regular season the way they wanted, losing to the Bucs, 31-24.

The Saints were leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-23 at the time of this post in the fourth quarter.

New Orleans, which won its first NFC South title since 2011, did not blink, though.

Godwin has seven receptions for 111 yards. Ingram and Kamara had already combined for 182 yards from scrimmage. 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.

Tampa made the final 31-24 when it made a two-point conversion after the Godwin touchdown.

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.

Against New Orleans, Winston just so managed to pass Dolphins legend Dan Marino for the third-most passing yards by a player from their rookie season through their first three seasons under center.

Evans joined an elite group, reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the fourth-straight season.

The rookie's 7-yard TD run on the Saints' first offensive possession made it 14-7. Saints safety Marcus Williams intercepted Winston at the Saints' 35 to set up the drive.

The Buccaneers (4-11) scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, the first by Peyton Barber and the second by quarterback Jameis Winston. He was stopped initially, but second and third efforts got him across.
