3 Saints to praise after NFC South champs put 52 points on the Vikings
One of two teams to play on Christmas Day, the New Orleans Saints were the only one in the NFL to walk away with the present of a win.
The New Orleans Saints dominated the Minnesota Vikings. Not only did they crush the team that has eliminated them in two of the last three postseasons, but they were able to take the Vikings’ postseason chances down to zero with their win.
The Saints put up seven touchdowns, six of which were by running back Alvin Kamara. Kamara could’ve snagged the seventh as well, but Taysom Hill was given the carry on fourth and one on the Minnesota one-yard line.
Coming off a two-game losing streak, the Saints got back in the winning column. It was a joy for Saints fans as they got many, many touchdowns on the board en route to one of the most entertaining games of the season.
It was also a unique score.
With a 19-point victory going into Week 17 against the Panthers, the Saints will have a chance to win 12 games. In the past two seasons, they’ve won 13 games each, so in that regard, this season will be a little annoying.
That said, let’s dive into three Saints that balled out in the team’s dominant Week 16 victory.
