Saints’ Taysom Hill runs for TD No. 2 as he shakes off slow start vs Falcons

Taysom Hill, Saints

Taysom Hill had a slow start to Sunday’s game for the New Orleans Saints, but he’s beginning to do what he does best, which is run the ball. Early in the fourth quarter versus the Atlanta Falcons, Hill scored his second rushing touchdown of the second half after a shaky start to the game.

Most people were surprised to see Hill named the starting quarterback for the Saints in Week 11 due to his lack of pass attempts in his career. However, the BYU product brings another dimension to the offense that Drew Brees doesn’t.

After faking the handoff to Kamara, Hill quickly looked down the field and saw none of his receivers open. Therefore, he escaped to the left side of the field and snuck his way into the end zone.

It was Hill’s second rushing touchdown of the second half, giving the Saints a comfortable 24-9 lead in the fourth quarter. He now has five rushing touchdowns in his career and zero passing touchdowns.
