The Saints stopped one Tampa drive when rookie safety Marcus Williams made his third interception of the season and on another when linebacker Craig Robertson picked off Winston.

Jameis Winston threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chris Godwin with 9 seconds left, rallying the Bucs to a 31-24 win against the New Orleans Saints.

After three consecutive incompletions, Winston found tight end Cameron Brate for a 12-yard gain on fourth-and-10 and the dramatic drive was on. That led to the punt to the 5-yard line, which Winston converted into a massive opportunity.

After starting on their own 8-yard line, the Saints scored on their next drive on a 3-yard pass to fullback Zach Line to put New Orleans back up 24-20 with 7:07 left to play.

The No. 4-seeded Saints (11-5) will host the No. 5 Panthers (11-5) in the first round next Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET. Isaiah Johnson recovered it and returned it for a 7-yard touchdown. His last came on a third down after the Bucs had been in the red zone, taking away a potential go-ahead field goal in the third quarter.

The Saints went up, 14-7, on a 7-yard touchdown run by Kamara to close a 65-yard drive in six plays.

The rookie running back out of Tennessee scored on a 106-yard kickoff return - the longest play in Saints history - and on a 7-yard run to help the Saints take a 14-13 lead.
