NEW ORLEANS, La. – Former BYU quarterback and New Orleans Saints “do it all” player Taysom Hill has been the spark that the Saints have needed in the NFC Wildcard game against the Minnesota Vikings.

On first and 10, Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw a pass to Hill for a 20-yard touchdown. Hill lined up as an outside wide receiver and ran down the sideline and the running back baited Vikings safety Harrison Smith, who was originally covering Hill and the former Cougar was open in the end zone.

It was the seventh touchdown catch of the season for Hill, who had six TD catches during the regular season. The score by Hill cut the Vikings lead to 20-17 with 10:37 remaining in the fourth quarter.

On the next drive, Hill took a direct snap and ran the ball 28 yards.

To that point in the game, Hill had one pass attempt, which was completed to Deonte Harris for 50-yards. He also ran the ball 4 times for 50 yards and also has two receptions for 25 yards and one touchdown.

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.
