SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU Cougar and New Orleans Saints utility man Taysom Hill put the Saints up by a large margin with his Monday Night Football touchdown catch.

Hill caught the pass from Drew Brees with about 40 seconds left in the third quarter to put the Saints up 33-0 over the Indianapolis Colts.

Last night was a historic night for Brees. He broke the NFL touchdown pass record with his 540th TD and ended the night with 541 career touchdowns.

The record was previously held by Peyton Manning. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is close behind with 538 touchdowns.

Hill has become one of New Orleans head coach Sean Payton’s favorite offensive weapons. He’s had everything from touchdown passes and rushing scores to blocked punts and touchdown catches.

The Saints went on to beat the Colts 34-7 last night. The Saints are 11-3 and looked primed to make a deep playoff run.
