Taysom Hill matches Daunte Culpepper’s historic feat in first career start; Sean Payton evaluates performance

Taysom Hill made his highly anticipated first career start Sunday, which netted a familiar result for the New Orleans Saints — another win. Hill certainly wasn’t Drew Brees in New Orleans’ 24-9 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, but he was efficient. 

Hill finished 18 of 23 for 233 yards and recorded a 108.9 passer rating, with no touchdown passes and no interceptions. Hill is just the seventh quarterback in the NFL since 1950 to have competed over 78% of his passes in his first career start (minimum 20 attempts). Of those seven quarterbacks in that category, he joins Stan Humphries as the only quarterback to average over 10 yards per pass attempt (Hill averaged 10.1 yards per attempt Sunday). 

Hill also rushed for 51 yards and two touchdowns (and a lost fumble), leading the Saints in both categories. He joined Daunte Culpepper as the only players in the Super Bowl

Lamar Jackson matches Dan Marino’s NFL record, ends dubious halftime mark that has plagued career

Lamar Jackson is certainly not a favorite to defend his MVP title, nor is he even in the race through eight games. Jackson has repeatedly said that his goal is to win the Super Bowl in 2020 and — despite his stats falling off from last season — the Baltimore Ravens are on their way to another postseason berth with a chance to reach the title game for the first time in eight seasons. 

The Ravens keep winning games, and sit in second place in the AFC North. Jackson isn’t tearing up defenses like he did a season ago, but he’s still 7-2 as a starter this season — tying Dan Marino for the best regular-season record through 30 starts at 25-5. Marino won his 30th career start, but lost his 31st — so Jackson actually has an opportunity to surpass him next week. 

Jackson entered Sunday’s game against the
