Three Takeaways From The New Orleans Saints Win Over The Seattle Seahawks

The New Orleans Saints got back on the winning trail as they outlasted the Seattle Seahawks in a wild back-and-forth game in the Caesars Superdome. The win breathes life into the Saints’ season and offers hope to Dennis Allen’s team. Here are three takeaways from the 39-32 win. 

Taysom Hill Is A Football Player

While some may mock Taysom Hill, no one can dispute his outrageous ability at playing football. Hill plays like he is a kid, playing pop warner football. Hill did this today with 112 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, one touchdown pass, a fumble recovery, 25 yards on kick returns, and a febrile kick-out block on Alvin Kamara’s game-icing run. If the Saints can unlock more Hill-specific packages, the Saints will become more dangerous. The BYU alum is an angry downhill runner and bulldozes defenders out of his way. Add that to his love for the game and adaptability, and Hill is special. He is not the best player in the NFL, but by God, he is the most unique player. 

Secondary Has A Day To Forget

The Saints’ defensive secondary struggled to defend the deep ball against Geno Smith. Smith shredded the intermediate and deep levels of the field. The veteran completed 16 passes for 268 yards, including an outrageous touchdown lob to Tyler Lockett in triple coverage. The Saints failed to deal with Seattle’s game-breaking speed. 

 

Andy Dalton Is Good Enough

Andy Dalton played an unspectacular but overall solid game. All Dalton needs to do is look after the ball and keep the Saints’ offense in smart situations. New Orleans finally found some offensive identity and rhythm in this game. Dalton played his part in that.
