Alvin Kamara is making a case for Rookie of the Year in his first season with the New Orleans Saints. He’s put up solid numbers in his first year in the league, and he’s made some spectacular highlight plays.
And on Sunday, he added yet another incredible play to his highlight reel.
The Saints trailed Washington by eight points with a little over a minute to go in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s match-up when quarterback Drew Brees dumped off a pass to Kamara hoping to pick up a first down. But Kamara turned a potential first down play into an unforgettable moment.

Kamara would then score on the two-point conversion to tie up the game, eventually forcing it into overtime. The Saints would eventually win 34-31 in overtime.
That touchdown was Kamara’s seventh of the season. He turned in his first 100-yard rushing performance of his NFL career last week when the Saints routed the Buffalo Bills, and he went over 1,000 all-purpose yards on the season with his performance on Sunday against Washington.
Kamara finished Sunday’s game with eight carries for 42 yards along with six catches for 75 yards and a score. He now has 459 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 72 carries to go along with 48 catches for 448 yards and three scores.
