The Saints were within 10 points of the Ravens for much of the game, until a late touchdown put the Ravens up 14 with three minutes left. However, the Saints were clearly focused on throwing the ball for much of the game, which meant Thomas was the more useful option. That has to be concerning for Ingram's owners, who have gotten used to a healthy dose of carries.
If the Saints are up, they will likely use Ingram plenty, as he is clearly the best pure runner on the team. However, Thomas is going to get work when they want to put the ball in the air, and that might happen often on a team that ranks 25th in scoring defense. Both Thomas and Ingram will have their uses down the stretch, however, and could be low-end starting Fantasy options.
Since producing three consecutive 100-yard rushing games Weeks 8-10, Ingram has mustered 94 yards on 34 carries (2.8 ypc) the past two weeks. He'll try to get back on track Week 13 at Pittsburgh.
Meanwhile, Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder),
Ingram saw his streak of 100-yard games come to an end at three. He was limited to 33 yards on 14 carries in the first half. Ingram finished the game with 23 carries for 67 yards and seven receptions for 30 yards, racking up 97 yards of total offense in a 27-10 defeat.
Ingram has 584 yards on the ground this season. He'll look to get back on track Week 12 against the Ravens.
