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

The New Orleans Saints running back cruised to a 40-yard touchdown run on the game’s opening drive for a quick 7-0 lead over the Minnesota Vikings. And he did it in style with a pair of green-and-red Christmas-themed cleats that may draw a fine from the league.

Kamara, who scored three TDs in the first half, now has 18 touchdowns on the season — tying his career high. And he has already set a career high with yards from scrimmage. Kamara was named to his fourth Pro Bowl in four years earlier this week.

The Saints’ offensive line deserves credit, too, on a day when both starting guards Andrus Peat and Nick Easton are out with injuries. The line blow open a big hole for Kamara against Minnesota’s injury-depleted defense.

Kamara may also be benefitting from his festive cleats.
