First NFL Rushing Touchdown Kamara’s first NFL rushing touchdown was also his first career touchdown. During the September 24, 2017, New Orleans Saints versus Carolina Panthers game, Kamara scored a rushing touchdown, the first of his career, in week three of the season. Kamara finished his rookie campaign with eight rushing touchdowns (TDs)—fourteen total, including one kickoff return TD—just behind the Kansas City Chief’s Kareem Hunt and the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette for most rookie rushing yards in 2017.
With 4:42 left in the game, Kamara’s twenty- five-yard rush resulted in a touchdown and secured the visiting Saints’ victory over the Panthers, 34–13.
