Report: Taysom Hill ‘Expected’ To Receive Fourth Consecutive Start As Saints QB

Dec 10, 2020, 11:03 AM

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU and current Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is expected to receive his fourth straight start as New Orleans’ signal-caller, according to Saints insider Jeff Duncan of The Athletic.

Hill will reportedly start in the Saints’ Week 14 game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, December 13.

“I’m told his three-game performance as the starter has only bolstered the confidence internally that he is the eventual heir apparent to Drew Brees’ job,” Duncan tweeted on Thursday, December 10.

Taysom Hill as a starting quarterback

During New Orleans’ Week 10 game against the San Francisco 49ers, Saints starter Drew Brees suffered multiple injuries, including broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

The following week, Brees was placed on the organization’s Injured Reserve, which meant he would miss a minimum of three games.

Prior to kickoff in Week 11, Saints head coach Sean Payton named Hill the starting quarterback with Brees out.

In the three games that Hill has started for New Orleans, the team has gone 3-0, with two wins over the Falcons and one over the Denver Broncos.

As a starter, Hill is 54/76 passing for 543 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He had a completion rate of 71.1 percent.

On the ground in those three contests, Hill ran the ball 34 times for 176 yards and four touchdowns.

New Orleans is currently 10-2, owns the top seed in the NFC, and have clinched a playoff berth.

The Saints’ next game is against the Philadelphia Eagles (3-8-1) on Sunday, December 13 at 2:25 p.m. (MDT).

The game will broadcast on FOX.
