    And I rank them:


    15. 1995 –Saints 12, Jets 0 – A snore fest; defense gets after Jets QB’s Boomer Esiason and Bubby Brister for 4 sacks, 3 picks

    14. 1974 – Saints 14, Cardinals 0 – Last Saints game ever in Tulane Stadium. The "Dyn-o-mite Gang" sacks Cards QB Jim Hart 4 times.

    13. 1992 – Saints 20, Jets 0 – In a blah game, Sam Mills’ 76 yard fumble return TD is the Saints' best play of the day.

    12. 2017 – Saints 20, Dolphins 0 – In London, this game begins the narrative that carries into today of the Saints becoming a top defense. Dolphins held under 200 yards.

    11. 2012 – Saints 41, Bucs 0 – The first time the Saints shut out the Bucs with Sean Payton (suspended) not in the building. Jabari Greer’s 2 picks hilite the D’s five turnovers.

    10. 1989 – Saints 28, Cowboys 0 – Welcome to the NFL, Troy Aikman. In his pro debut, Aikman picked twice, sacked twice.

    9. 1982 – Saints 10, Bears 0 – First road shutout in franchise history. Walter Payton held to 20 total yards. Bruce Clark with 2 sacks

    8. 1986 – Saints 6, Rams 0 – 4 turnovers, 3 sacks, 176 total yards for the Rams. Eric Dickerson? 57 yards

    7. 1987 – Saints 38, Falcons 0 – An early Dome Patrol gem, this one on the road. D makes QB Scott Campbell’s day miserable with 4 ints, 4 sacks

    6. 1976 – Saints 30, Falcons 0 – D produces 7 turnovers, 5 sacks, allows 168 total yards. LB Jim Merlo starts the scoring with an 83-yard pick

    5. 1973 – Saints 13, Bills 0 – In the season O.J. Simpson became the NFL’s first ever 2,000 yard rusher, the Saints held The Juice to 79 yards.

    4. 1988 – Saints 42, Broncos 0 – Largest margin of victory until the MNF blowout of the Colts in 2011. Dome Patrol shuts down Elway (166 yards passing)

    3. 1991 – Saints 26, Vikings 0 – Dome Patrol is absolutely stifling. Vikes with 151 total yards. Herschel Walker, 25 total yards.

    2.1991 – Saints 27, Raiders 0 – Second shutout of the ’91 season. 117 total yards against an offense featuring Marcus Allen and Tim Brown. Brett Maxie pick 6 seals the deal.

    1. 2021 – Saints 9, Bucs 0 - No offense? No Sean Payton? No problem! Defense pressures Tom Brady into 2 turnovers, 4 sacks.

    So sick of the talking heads mentioning how the Bucs couldn't get anything going with all their injured players. Bitch, have you seen our team? No head coach, 3rd string QB, and our best O-linemen out. No WRs and TEs that can't catch. Calm down with that shit. It shouldn't be a problem if you're the GOAT. How many receivers did Drew make famous that didn't do anything elsewhere once they left?
