Alvin Kamala broke the NFL record with six touchdowns in the game, with New Orleans rushing to a height of 155 yards to defeat Minnesota Vikings 52-33 and achieve his fourth straight title. Did.
On Christmas day, wearing shoes in different colors of red and green, Kamala sprinted a 40-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the game. He added five more scoring runs in a rush of less than 10 yards, all against Minnesota’s defensive front, which was hit hard by the injury. Kamala was comparable to the record set by the Hall of Fame Fullback Arnie Nevers for Cardinal Chicago in 1929.
Minnesota (6-9) has been eliminated from the playoffs and the Viking team has scored the most points since 1963. Saints (11-4) did not punt and set a record for the yard that the Viking opponent had won in the game at 583. Without Drew Brees pair interception, they could have won by a bigger margin. One of them was a path out of the hands of receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Breeze completed 19 of 26 throws of 311 yards in his second game, returning from a rib and lung injury that set him aside in four games.
Sanders caught 4 at 83 yards and the tight end Jared Cook caught 3 passes at 82 yards. The 264-yard rush in New Orleans was the number one Viking opponent in seven seasons with head coach Mike Zimmer.
Originally from New Orleans, Irv Smith Jr. caught the Viking touchdown pass twice in the third quarter, pulling Minnesota 31-27 the second time. However, Saints responded in the fourth quarter with two short touchdown runs by Kamala and one short touchdown run by spare QB Taysom Hill, putting the game out of reach.
Kirk Cousins passed 283 yards and three touchdowns for the Vikings. The Vikings never led or dragged after Kamala’s second TD in the first quarter.
In a game where both defenses struggled, Saints receiver Marquez Caraway played defensive back delights when he prevented Eric Wilson from intercepting the Pass Breeze thrown by a linebacker. Breeze took advantage of his second chance to hit Caraway 11 yards in his next play, find Cook and win 6 yards of the Vikings 19 yards. This set the third TD run for Kamala’s half, bringing New Orleans to 24-14.
