Wins in relief
Siemian completed nine of 15 passes for 71 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Falcons.
Siemian was forced into the game after Taysom Hill (foot) exited with a foot injury in the first half. The Saints relied heavily on Alvin Kamara and the run game, though Siemian was effective when called upon. He led the offense to the end zone twice, throwing for scores from 13 and five yards away. After serving as the backup and making spot starts in New Orleans for the 2021 season, Siemian will hit free agency this offseason and will likely look for another backup role around the league.
