ATLANTA, Ga. – New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill ran the ball 30 yards untouched for a Saints’ touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons.

Hill’s touchdown run was his second score of the Thanksgiving Day game on Thursday, November 28.

The Saints’ third-string quarterback subbed in at QB for Drew Brees on 3rd & 1 from the Falcons’ 30-yard line. Hill took the snap up the middle of the field 30 yards and into the endzone without an Atlanta defender laying a hand on him.

Even though he was on the sidelines for the play, Brees loved Hill’s execution of the play.

Hill’s TD sprint gave the Saints a 17-6 lead with 1:53 left before halftime. The run was the former BYU Cougars’ second-longest run of his NFL career.

According to ESPN Stats & Info and NFL Next Gen Stats, Hill reached a maximum speed of 20.17 MPH on the TD. It was the fastest offensive touchdown run by New Orleans player this season.

It was Hill’s third rushing touchdown of the season.

Earlier in the game, the Saint’s QB caught 3-yard TD pass from fellow QB Brees to give New Orleans’ its first score of the game.

At halftime, the Saints led the Falcons 17-9.

Hill entered the break with 2 receptions for 12 yards, a rush for 30 yards, 2 total touchdowns, and a blocked punt.

The Saints vs. Falcons game is broadcast on KSL TV.
