Though the league allowed Kamara to wear the cleats for the duration of the game, he was fined for non-conforming footwear.

Kamara made history in the cleats, becoming the first player to score six touchdowns in a game since Gale Sayers did it for the Chicago Bears in 1965. He anticipated the penalty.

"Oh, they're probably going to fine me," Kamara said after the Saints' 52-33 win over Minnesota. "If they fine me, whatever it is, I'll just match it and donate it to charity. You know that the Grinch always tries to steal Christmas."
