2003 2005

The 2004 New Orleans Saints season was the team's 38th as a member of the National Football League (NFL). They matched their previous season's output of 8–8,[1] and the team finished the season on a four-game winning streak, which was all the more remarkable because the Saints trailed at some point during every game.[2] This record was equalled by the 2012 Cowboys, but before this season the 1978 Falcons and the 2002 Browns come closest to this record, winning eight games out of fifteen where they trailed at some point.
