My Player of the Game
Taysom Hill
Game Notes
This was the Taysom Hill show today! He was a special player today! Blocked a punt, scored on a pass, scored on a run, threw a pass, etc. i think the only thing he did nto do was play on defense! Don't put it passed him either - he just might line up at safety! This was not a typical Saints game. they struggled to score touchdowns. will Lutz would be the second choice for MVP with 4 FGs. Luckily, the Defense was on last night and really kept the Falcons at bay for most of the game. Congrats to the Saints on this one!

Taysom Hill's block and Lutz's FG were the real keys to the game!

Has to be Taysom Hill's blocked kick - it just set the tone for the rest of the day!
