Former Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara fell into the end zone from two yards out to give the New Orleans Saints a 14-0 lead over the New England Patriots.

A routine, ordinary touchdown at first glance but it marks Kamara’s 73rd touchdown as a New Orleans Saint. The mark makes him the new leading touchdown man in Saints’ franchise history.

The versatile running back has found the end zone in numerous ways in his seven-year NFL career. Kamara has 50 career rushing touchdowns, 22 career receiving touchdowns and one career kick return touchdown.
