The Saints playoff chances are remote at best, but that didn't stop the team from looking post-season worthy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Drew Brees completed 26 of 39 passes for 307 yards and four touchdowns, and New Orleans dominated from the start in a 41-0 victory against Tampa Bay in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Tampa Bay (6-8) has a four-game losing streak. Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman completed 26 of 47 passes for 279 yards and four interceptions, two of which were by Saints cornerback Jabari Greer.

The Saints (6-8) had their most interceptions in a game since 2003. The Saints last shutout was Dec. 24, 1995 against the New York Jets. The Saints' last home-game shutout was against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1991.
