New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is one of the most elusive running backs in the NFL. He can frustrate defenders by changing direction on a dime and accelerating at a level most of us could scarcely imagine.
Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch and multiple Cowboys defenders found that out first-hand in the third quarter of Sunday night’s game.
Check out this absolutely insane 11-yard run from Kamara in which he made four different defenders miss.
We’re just glad that Vander Esch didn’t suffer a serious injury. Slang sports terminology would conclude that the third-year back broke ankles and took names.
Sure it only went for 11 yards. But that doesn’t change how majestic Kamara looked embarrassing the Cowboys’ defense. It also helped New Orleans take a 12-10 lead early in the fourth quarter.
