Alvin Kamara reacts to possible fine for Christmas cleats after 6 TD game
Alvin Kamara was the story of the NFL on Christmas as he rushed for an incredible six touchdowns in the New Orleans Saints’ 52-33 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Friday.
Kamara’s six rushing touchdowns were the most in an NFL game since Ernie Nevers accomplished the feat in 1929. That’s incredible.

Beyond the six touchdowns, Kamara also drew plenty of attention over his Christmas-themed cleats. He wore a red cleat on his right foot and a green cleat on his left foot.

The cleats are a violation of the NFL’s uniform policy, which puts Kamara in jeopardy of a fine. He called the NFL the “Grinch” for possibly fining him over the cleats.
Alvin Kamara: "If they fine me, I'll just match it and send it to charity. The Grinch always tries to steal Christmas."

Teammate Cam Jordan had a hilarious remark about the possible fine.
Cam Jordan asked what he thinks about Alvin Kamara likely getting fined for wearing Christmas cleats: "Well, when the hall of fame calls to come get the cleats, now he's just got to charge them … so he can break even." #Saints

Kamara rushed for six touchdowns in a game. Six! We doubt he’ll let any possible fine ruin his week.
