3. Saints quarterback question

This is a good spot for the Cowboys in need of a bounce back. The Saints starting quarterback at the beginning of the year was Jameis Winston and he is out for the season. Then they went to Trevor Siemian who has underperformed in his four starts this year.

So it appears the Saints will start Taysom Hill this week. He took the first-team reps in practice on Monday and has a great rapport with head coach Sean Payton. Hill is the ultimate dual-threat quarterback as he has spent most of his career as a gadget guy for the Saints.

Hill is 3-1 in his career as a starting quarterback and he has a 71.1 career completion percentage to go along with 1103 yards, four touchdowns, and four interceptions. Hill is a bigger threat running than passing and this is exactly what the Cowboys’ secondary needs to regain confidence after a forgettable game against the Raiders.
