The New Orleans Saints, with their win against the Vikings, now have the record for most consecutive NFC South titles, clinching their fourth in a row on Friday.

On Friday, the New Orleans Saints watched Alvin Kamara set both personal records and NFL records.

He had the most rushing yards of his career, topping 150. He also tied the record for the most rushing touchdowns in a single game with six. He could’ve had seven as well, but the team gave the ball to Taysom Hill on the one-yard line.

The Saints absolutely obliterated the Vikings, winning 52-33. While the 52 is great, the Saints do need to sharpen up defensively, something that will be more difficult to do as Kwon Alexander has been ruled out for the season with a torn Achilles.

Led by several dominant defensive ends, the Saints have had one of the league’s best defenses this season. They should be just fine moving forward, and with 11 wins, the team has now clinched their division.

Over the past three seasons, the Saints have won 37 games. Add in next week, and they’ll have neared 50 wins in the past four seasons. They’ve only been able to set an NFC record because of the stepping up of several players.

That said, let’s dive into three of the most important.
