(Reuters) – New Orleans, who trailed Alvin Kamara, tied the National Football League (NFL) record for quick touchdowns in a single game when he crossed the finish line six times on Friday in the Saints’ 52:33 win over the Minnesota Vikings crossed.
Kamara hit the record held by Ernie Nevers, who accomplished the feat in 1929, with a three-yard run that left less than two minutes in the blowout.
The 25-year-old finished with 155 yards on 22 trages. He also had three receptions for 17 meters.
Kamara spoke on the sidelines after the game, paying tribute to the Saints’ offensive line.
“Kudos to the O-Line. They get the ball and they enable us to win,” he added.
Kamara’s milestone wasn’t the only one in the Superdome. Saints quarterback Drew Brees became the first player to reach 80,000 career opportunities.
Brees, who passed the game 19-26 for 311 yards, reached the milestone when he bonded with Latavius Murray after nine yards early in the second half.
The victory secured the Saints (11: 4) the title in the NFC South Division for the fourth time in a row.
