(Sports Network) - The New Orleans Saints will be aiming to close out a perfect preseason when they play their exhibition finale against the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.
The game marks the Saints' return to South Florida for the first time since the franchise's biggest ever triumph, a win over Indianapolis in Super Bowl XLIV at the same venue.
New Orleans improved its preseason mark to 3-0 on Sunday with a 31-23 win over the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium and another victory would cap the team's first ever undefeated exhibition slate.
In slightly more than a quarter of work against the Texans, quarterback Drew Brees completed 4-of-6 passes for 104 yards and a gaudy 149.3 passer rating, leaving the game following a 51-yard completion for a touchdown to Pierre Thomas.
David Douglas' touchdown catch with 1:03 to play spoiled Miami's latest affair as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers edged the Fish, 17-16, on Saturday.
Ryan Tannehill was 17-for-27 with 150 yards and a score in the setback while Brandon Gibson caught five passes for 43 yards and a touchdown for the Dolphins, who fell to 1-3 in exhibition games.
The Saints and the Dolphins have faced each other 20 times in the preseason, with Miami holding a 13-7 edge. The two clubs will also play in the regular season just a little more than a month from now when New Orleans hosts Miami at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday, Sept. 30.
