4 ... Reggie Bush's four-yard rushing touchdown against the Eagles not only was the longest TD run in Saints postseason history, it was twice as long as all previous rushing touchdowns in Saints playoff history combined. The only previous rushing TDs in Saints history were one-yarders by Dalton Hilliard in 1991 and Craig Hayward in 1992. Bush's record didn't last long though. Deuce McAllister's five-yarder broke it later in the game.

The longest previous outdoor postseason field goal was Garo Yepremian's 37-yarder at Municipal Stadium in Kansas City in 1971.
