The 2001 New Orleans Saints season was the franchise's 35th season in the National Football League and the 26th to host games at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints failed to improve on their 11-5 record from 2000 and finishing at 7-9. Thus missing the playoffs for the first time since 1999; This meant that the team would become the seventeenth consecutive season that the team hosting the Super Bowl would not be playing in it; A feat that has not been achieved as of Super Bowl XIX.

The Saints were outscored 160-52 in their final four games.

After just three seasons with the Saints, running back Ricky Williams was traded to the Miami Dolphins during the 2002 off-season.
