The New Orleans Saints are a professional NFL team that hails from New Orleans, Louisiana. The team plays in the Southern Division of the NFC. The team was originally founded by the city of New Orleans, David Dixon, and John W. Mecom. The colors of this team are gold and black. The team is named after All Saints Day. The city of New Orleans has a very large Catholic population. The infamous song, When the Saints Go Marching In, often leads back to New Orleans. Until 1975, the team played all of their home games in Tulane Stadium. Since 1975, the team has played their home games in Louisiana Super Dome. The arena was renamed Mercedes Benz Super Dome.
The Saints did not have their first winning season until 1987. It was during 1987 that the team made it to the playoffs for the first time since their inception, but experienced a devastating loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Saints finally scored a championship title when they defeated the St. Louis Rams. When Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, the Super Dome was used to house residents of the city that had been displaced. It was during this time that the team had to play their first home game of the season in New Jersey. Tom Benson is currently the owner of the team. The Super Dome was repaired by the 2006 season. Repairs to the stadium cost a staggering one hundred eighty five million dollars.
Sean Payton, a new rookie coach, has helped bring glory back to the New Orleans Saints. The current quarterback of the team, Drew Brees, is expected to help lead the Saints to numerous victories during the 2013 season. During 2009, the team broke their franchise record by winning thirteen games. The team advanced to the AFC Championship and defeated the Indianapolis Colts. The New Orleans Saints have only made one Super Bowl appearance in their history, which they won.
