With Drew Brees sitting out, Taysom Hill threw a touchdown pass, running backs Boston Scott and Jonathan Williams each ran for scores and New Orleans’ special teams added a TD on a blocked punt as the Saints shut out the visiting Los Angeles Rams 28-0 on Thursday night.
The Rams also sat their starting quarterback, Jared Goff, while star running back Todd Gurley took the night off, too. Neither played throughout the entire preseason.
Hill finished 10-for-17 passing for 159 yards with the one touchdown and no picks. Former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett completed 3 of 6 passes for 18 yards and one interception.
L.A. quarterbacks Brandon Allen (7 of 13, 57 yards) and Luis Perez (8 of 15, 43 yards) each threw an interception in the loss.
