SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU and current New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill hurdled a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive player during a big run on Sunday Night Football.

The Bucs hosted the Saints on Sunday, November 8

During the early part of the second quarter, Hill, who had caught a 21-yard pass from Drew Brees, took over at quarterback. The former BYU signal-caller snapped the ball, surveyed the field, and took off running from the pocket.

As he flew up the field, Hill leaped over a Tampa Bay defender that attempted to tackle the him.

Two plays later, the Saints scored their third touchdown of the first half to take a 21-0 lead over the Buccaneers.

After his run, Hill had two carries for 26 yards.

Hill was also 1/1 passing for 19 yards to go along with one catch for 21 yards in the first half.

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