SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU and current New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill sprinted to the corner and into the end zone for his second touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Saints hosted the Falcons on Sunday, November 22.

It was Hill’s first NFL start at quarterback.

With 12:41 left to play, Hill took the snapped and was flushed to the left by pressure from Atlanta’s defense. After looking at his options downfield, the quarterback took off and sprinted towards the pylon and across the goal line for his second rushing touchdown of the contest.

Hill’s run extended the Saints’ lead to 24-9.

After the score, the former BYU quarterback was 17/22 passing for 224 yards. He had a passer rating of 108.9.

On the ground, Hill had six rushes for 27 yards and two touchdowns.

The Falcons vs. Saints game is broadcast on FOX.
