New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston fumbled the ball, but managed to throw a touchdown to Alvin Kamara after picking it up.
The Seattle Seahawks kept the New Orleans Saints in check for the majority of the first half, limiting them to just three points. Well, at least until the final drive of the second quarter, which saw the Saints score a touchdown in an unintentionally creative way.
On first-and-10 on Seattle’s 13-yard line, quarterback Jameis Winston fumbled the snap, likely causing Saints fans to enter panic mode. Instead, Winston picked up the ball and threw it to a wide open Alvin Kamara, who ran it into the end zone to put New Orleans up 10-7 prior to halftime.

Kamara was unstoppable in the first half, as he caught eight passes from Winston for 108 yards and the touchdown, while rushing for 29 yards on 13 carries.
The star running back made some history in Seattle, as he is now the fastest player to record 3,000 rushing yards and 3,000 receiving yards. He accomplished this feat in just 66 career games. The previous record was held by Roger Craig, who did so in 70 games.
