The New Orleans Saints had been unstoppable all game long as they clinched their fourth straight NFC South title, and then Kamara added his name to the record books with his sixth score:
The 25-year-old running back matched Chicago Cardinals Hall of Famer Ernie Nevers, who was the only other player with six rushing touchdowns in a game, per NFL Research. He accomplished the feat in 1929.
After the game, Kamara credited the Saints offensive line and receivers for helping him achieve the feat:
Quarterback Drew Brees raved about Kamara's "awesome" accomplishment:
It had already been an impressive season for Kamara, who had 10 rushing touchdowns and five receiving scores entering Week 16. He is a major reason why the Saints have remained an elite team despite injuries to key players such as Brees, wide receiver Michael Thomas and others.
This performance on national television only adds to his success in 2020 and could further his case for the Offensive Player of the Year award.
