The 1980 New Orleans Saints season was the team's 14th as a member of the National Football League. They were unable to improve on their previous season's output of 8-8, winning only one game. The team failed to qualify for the playoffs for the fourteenth consecutive season and had the dubious distinction not only of winning only a single game, but winning it by a single point. Disgruntled fans called their team "the Aints," going so far as to show up to games wearing brown paper bags over their heads. In embarrassment they called themselves the Unknown Fan in a practice that would become the trademark of disgruntled fans across various sports in the United States. To this day, the 1980 Saints continued to hold the worst regular-season record by a team whose stadium hosted the Super Bowl that season.
