Saints finish Bucs' season

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

The Buccaneers finish the season with loss number 12 at New Orleans.

Drew Brees passed for four touchdowns and ran for another score, and New Orleans clinched a wild card spot with a 42-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Three of Brees' scoring strikes were longer than 40 yards -- 76 to Kenny Stills, 44 to Lance Moore and 41 to Robert Meachem.

Brees passed for 381 yards, eclipsing 5,000 yards in a season for an unprecedented fourth time.

He finished the season with 5,162 yards to go with 39 touchdowns.

Brees' other TD was a 10-yard pass to tight end Jimmy Graham, and the Saints (11-5) finished 8-0 in the Superdome.

Mike Glennon passed for 219 yards and two TDs for Tampa Bay (4-12).

With doubts swirling about the future of second-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano, the Bucs closed the season with losses in their last three games, and four of their last five.
