Saints' Taysom Hill gets back to being a game-changer

ATLANTA – When Drew Brees was sidelined for five weeks earlier this season, the New Orleans Saints didn’t just lose their Hall of Fame quarterback.

They also had to tear a few pages out from the Taysom Hill section of their playbook.

The Saints had to cut back on a lot of things they love to do with Hill on both offense and special teams during that stretch, because they needed to keep him protected as the No. 2 quarterback behind Teddy Bridgewater.

But Hill was certainly back to his old do-everything ways on Thursday night – deflecting a punt on special teams, catching a 3-yard touchdown pass and scoring on a 30-yard run during the first half of New Orleans’ 26-18 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
