For the first 20 years after the franchise was founded in 1966, the Saints were awful. They did not have one winning season until 1987. That year, they finished 12-3 and qualified for the playoffs for the first time. In 2000, 34 years into their existence, the Saints won their first playoff game, beating the St. Louis Rams 31-28. They played their home games in Tulane Stadium through the 1974 NFL season. The following year, they moved to the new Louisiana Superdome (now the Mercedes-Benz Superdome).
The Saints finally reached the mountaintop in 2009. They won a franchise-record 13 games and competed in the Super Bowl for the first time. They beat Indianapolis in Super Bowl 44. It is the only Super Bowl the Saints have appeared in, and they join the New York Jets and Tampa Bay as the only three NFL teams to win their lone Super Bowl appearance.
Over the course of 49 seasons, the Saints have losing records in the regular season at 324-409-5 and playoffs at 7-9.

New Orleans Saints Online Betting Tips
Superstar quarterback Drew Brees is still the engine that drives the machine, but the Saints have finished 7-9 for three consecutive seasons and four of the last five. The offense is one of the best in the league, and now they have another superstar in Adrian Peterson at running back.
But the offense is hardly the problem. Their defense in 2016 was among the worst in the league, allowing more points than every team in the NFL except for San Francisco. They ranked 27th overall last season. Even with the addition of Malcolm Butler, there’s obviously a lot of room for improvement.
The Saints must get off to a decent start in 2017, something they haven’t done in the last few seasons. But NFL’s schedule-makers have made that an extremely difficult task. The Saints will open with a Monday night road game at Minnesota, then host the Super Bowl champions (New England) on a short week, then play at Carolina, then face Miami in London.
There are plenty of bright spots to be excited about for Saints’ fan. They will likely continue to put up a ton of points. But the problem will still be keeping opponents of their end zone. A fourth year at 7-9? It sure looks like it.
