Deuce moves into top spot in record book

If this is how it ends for Deuce McAllister -- and that's entirely possibly -- it's fitting.

The most popular player in New Orleans history just set the franchise record for touchdowns. McAllister's third-quarter plunge gave him 54 career touchdowns. That's one more than the previous record set by Dalton Hilliard.

McAllister got a huge ovation in the Superdome, but now you have to wonder if it's his last. With the possibility of a four-game suspension, age and a diminishing role hanging over McAllister's head, this was an emotional moment.

McAllister has been fighting a suspension for testing positive for a banned substance. If he's suspended after Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, this could be McAllister's last game in the Superdome.
