Carolina will get a third try to beat the Saints as it will be in the Superdome next Saturday or Sunday for a Wild Card playoff.

Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET.

The Saints clinched their very first playoff spot since 2013 with a victory over the Falcons last week, but a win versus the Bucs this afternoon means they can notch the NFC South crown as well.

Both Browns backs rushed for more than 1,000 yards, while Ingram and Kamara have been much more productive in the passing game.

Pete Carroll tweets about his youth as retirement rumors swirl
Pete Carroll says that he hasn't started thinking of retirement, despite reports to the contrary from earlier today. The Seahawks have won four NFC West titles, reached the Super Bowl twice and won one Super Bowl under Carroll.

The Saints were leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-23 at the time of this post in the fourth quarter. The rookie took the kick 106 yards for a score.

During the Bucs' final drive, wide receiver Mike Evans eclipsed 1,000 yards on the season, making him just the third player in league history to record four such seasons to start their career.

After starting on their own 8-yard line, the Saints scored on their next drive on a 3-yard pass to fullback Zach Line to put New Orleans back up 24-20 with 7:07 left to play. The extra point was no good, keeping the Saints ahead, 14-13.

The Buccaneers drove 75 yards in 12 plays to cut it to 14-13 at the 5:50 mark of the second quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by Winston on third-and-goal.
