Power Ranking Every Super Bowl Champion in NFL History

34. Super Bowl XLIV: 2009 New Orleans Saints

Date: February 7, 2010

Venue: SunLife Stadium, Miami

Final Score: New Orleans Saints 31, Indianapolis Colts 17

Champion Rating: 1.7

The Saints finally earned their "S" after decades of misery and heartache for their fans, and they had quarterback Drew Brees to thank for it.

Well, they also had cornerback Tracy Porter's game-sealing interception of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to thank. Head coach Sean Payton's gamble with a surprise onside kick to start the second half was also a big factor.

Brees was the biggest reason the Saints were there in the first place, as they featured the second-most prolific offense to ever win a Super Bowl. They led the league with 510 points and 6,461 total yards, easily the best in the league.

Key defensive plays marked their postseason run. Porter saved the day in the NFC Championship Game, too, intercepting Brett Favre to prevent the Minnesota Vikings from kicking a game-winning field goal instead of going into overtime.

It was the fifth takeaway of the game for the Saints. The defense showed up when it mattered most, despite a pedestrian regular season. Brees did the rest.
