Alvin Kamara had a chance to do something special on Friday but for whatever reason Sean Payton didn’t give him the ball late in the game.
During the Saints-Vikings Christmas day game, Kamara scored five touchdowns and had a chance for a record-tying sixth TD late in the fourth quarter but the Saints decided to run the ball with QB Taysom Hill.

Update: Kamara was able to get his sixth TD later in the game but fans were mad he didn’t have an NFL record 7 TDs because of Payton giving Hill the ball on the goal line earlier in the fourth quarter.

Fans weren’t happy with Sean Payton’s decision to run the ball with Hill instead of giving it to Kamara on that play.
Alvin Kamara, have a day. And just think, if not for Sean Payton's infatuation with Taysom Hill, Kamara could have been the first ever with 7 TDs. Alas. Still fun to watch NFL history. https://t.co/Cv0nPSNRao

Kamara could’ve had seven touchdowns but Payton is too obsessed with Taysom Hill

Kamara could’ve had seven if not for the idiot Sean Peyton who felt the need to flex his ego and score with taysom

Kind of upset Sean Payton didn’t give the ball to Kamara on the one yard line for his potential 6th TD. My man could’ve had seven and broke the #nfl record

Sean Payton stopped history from happening today.
That should have been seven.
