It is hard for someone like New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, now in his 18th season in the NFL, to experience new things on a football field.

But last Sunday (Sept. 9) against the Buccaneers was a first: His viewpoint of Alvin Kamara's five-yard first-quarter touchdown run was that of a wide receiver's. For the first time in his career (as he remembers it, anyway), Brees broke the huddle and ran out toward the boundary to line up in a receiver's stance. Tampa Bay put a corner on him and everything.

It was because the Saints offense, on this play, was put in the hands of backup quarterback Taysom Hill. After leading New Orleans in rushing this preseason (and finishing as the Packers' second-leading rusher in the 2017 preseason), the Saints showed the rest of the league they do not plan on limiting Hill to a special teams role in the regular season.
