NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Alvin Kamara tied an NFL record by running for six touchdowns in a game and finished with a career-high 155 yards rushing to help New Orleans beat the Minnesota Vikings 52-33 and clinch their fourth straight NFC South title.

Kamara sprinted for a 40-yard touchdown on the game's opening drive and added five more short scoring runs against a Minnesota defensive front hit hard by injuries.

Kamara equaled a record set by Hall of Fame fullback Ernie Nevers in 1929.

Minnesota was eliminated from playoff contention while allowing the most points by any Vikings team since 1963.
