Taysom Hill Punches In Touchdown After Impressive Drive
CHICAGO, Ill. – Former BYU and current New Orleans Saints “Swiss Army Knife” helped the Saints score a touchdown after long run that ultimately set up Hill’s four-yard catch in the end zone.
Hill had the longest run of the game on that drive that came on the fifth play as the fullback pitched Hill the ball on an option play. The former Cougar ran 23 yards on the play to the Bears 33-yard line.
Six plays later, Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater found Hill for a four-yard touchdown. It’s the second receiving touchdown of his career, both coming this season. The last one was in their season opener against the Houston Texans.
In his three-year career, Hill has four touchdowns, two rushing and two receiving.
The touchdown against the Bears gave the Saints a 26-10 late in the third quarter. Hill has been playing different positions even with Saints starting quarterback Drew Brees missing action with a thumb injury.
New Orleans has a 5-1 record despite the injury to Brees and are leading the NFC South Division.
