New Orleans Saints win AFC South with win over San Diego Chargers

New Orleans has won its first game in the division since 2006, defeating the San Diego 49ers 23-20 in overtime.

The Saints won their second straight game and tied the franchise record for most wins in a season, passing the 2000 Cleveland Browns for most in a single season.

New Orleans’ two-game winning streak includes the most wins by a single team in NFL history.

New York won for the fourth time in five games.

The 49ers were the only team to win in overtime and have a winning record since winning the division in 2000.

San Diego took a 3-1 lead into the fourth quarter but Brees threw a pair of interceptions and San Diego rallied in the final minutes.

The 49ers never recovered.

New Orleans won in a game the Saints have dominated in the past two years, finishing a season with a 3 1/2-game lead.

It was the first time New Orleans won the division and first time it has won two straight.

The offense was more explosive than usual this season, but San Diego was also the team that came out on top in every statistical category.

San Diego led the NFL in scoring and yards per game with a total of 5,955.

New England led the league with 4,935 yards and tied for first with 1,873 rushing yards.
