NEW ORLEANS, La. – Former BYU quarterback and New Orleans Saints Swiss Army Knife Taysom Hill threw a deep pass that set up a Saints touchdown in their NFC Wildcard game against the Minnesota Vikings.

On second down with five yards to go for the first down at their own 35 yard line, Hill ran for an 11-yard gain to their 46-yard line.

The following play, Hill stayed in at quarterback, replacing Drew Brees, and scrambled out of the pocket and threw a deep pass to wide receiver Deonte Harris for 50-yards at the Vikings 4-yard line.

 

The next play, Brees returned at quarterback and handed the ball off to Alvin Kamara for a four-yard touchdown, with Hill as the leading blocker.

It was the first touchdown of the game to give the Saints a 10-3 lead with 9:18 left in the second quarter.

To that point in the game, Hill had one pass attempt and completion for 50 yards, and ran the ball twice for 13 yards.

During the regular season, Hill went 3-6 passing for 55 yards, 27 carries for 156 yards and one touchdown, along with 19 receptions for 234 yards and 6 touchdowns.
