Saints Alvin Kamara tied the NFL record with six rushing touchdowns

It didn’t take long for Alvin Kamara to deliver on Christmas day.

The New Orleans Saints trailed on a 40-yard touchdown run on the opening drive of the game for a quick edge over the Minnesota Vikings. And he did so in style with a pair of green-and-red Christmas-themed clats that could take penalties out of the league.

Kamra scored six touchdowns against the Vikings and now has 21 touchdowns on the season – his career high. His six participating TDs tied with Ernie Nevers (Chicago Cardinals, 1929) for one game in NFL history. Kummer set a career high with yards from scratch. He was named to his fourth Pro Bowl in four years earlier this week.

The Saints offensive line deserves credit, that too, when one day guards Andrés Pete and Nick Easton are both out with early injuries. The line opens a huge hole for Kamara against Minnesota’s injury-free defense.

Kamra could also benefit from his famous cleavage.
