The Saints converted a fake punt down by 14-points deep in their own territory. The call paid off in more ways than one.
Not only did New Orleans pickup a big first down, the drive ended with a touchdown.

That could have ended with the Eagles putting more points on the board and extending their lead. When you have a guy like Taysom Hill you don’t really have to worry about making these types of decisions.
The Saints added a field goal late in the second quarter to make it just a 4-point game going into halftime.
