New Orleans Saints: Alvin Kamara breaking his TD drought is reason for hope
New Orleans Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara has had a solid season, but his touchdown numbers that made him stand out last season have been mostly absent.
This season has been one of records for the New Orlean Saints’ offense. In the past two weeks alone, the fans have seen Drew Brees break Peyton Manning’s record for all-time TD passes and Michael Thomas surpass Marvin Harrison for the most single-season receptions.
The offense appears to be humming, and most of the team is finally healthy at the same time. One name that surprisingly hasn’t been making headlines this season, however, is the sparkplug back Alvin Kamara.
Kamara has been absolutely dominant in his first two seasons with the team, totaling 22 rushing touchdowns and 9 receiving touchdowns. This season has been a bit of a cold-spell for those insane scoring statistics, though.
Before Sunday’s game, Kamara had only put up two total touchdowns on the season. Both came in the Week 3 win over the Seahawks, but the scoring column has been blank since then.
Luckily, Kamara snapped the scoreless streak with two rushing touchdowns to help push New Orleans over the top in a close win against the Titans. But there are still some questions that remain.
Why has Kamara been held scoreless so much this season? Will this impact him going forward? What will he be like in the playoffs?
