NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill made a nice catch with a Tennessee Titans defender draped over him that set the Saints up for a touchdown.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees threw the ball from the Titans 39-yard line to Hill for a 23-yard reception.

On the next play, Brees found tight end Jared Cook for a 16-yard touchdown to give the Saints a 10-point lead. Hill also had a four-yard run on that drive.

That wasn’t the only thing that the former Cougar did in the game against the Titans. Hill also had a four-yard run on that drive. Plus, he had two tackles on special teams, including a tackle on the opening kickoff.

Through three quarters, Hill had two carries for 11 yards, two catches for 21 yards and two tackles. On one of his offensive plays, former Southern Utah defensive back pushed Hill out of bounds for the Titans.
