Ingram's final line was nothing to write home about, but his 17-yard touchdown run with 7:26 remaining essentially sealed the win for the Saints. The veteran back hasn't topped 52 rushing yards in any of his last three games, but three of his five rushing touchdowns on the season have come within the last four games. Ingram's passing game role does remain depressed, as he's failed to eclipse two receptions in seven of nine contests. He'll look to up his overall numbers against the Panthers in a Week 15 Monday night matchup.
Ingram's opportunities were notably limited, as he logged a season-low amount of carries. The eight-year veteran appeared to be surging with back-to-back 100-yard efforts in Weeks 10 and 11, but he's now netted 79 yards on 18 rushes over his last pair of contests. Ingram will look to bounce back to his prior level of production against the Buccaneers in a Week 14 divisional clash on Dec. 9.
Ingram put up 52 rushing yards on 11 attempts, adding two receptions for 14 yards during Thursday's 31-17 win against the Falcons.
Atlanta did a reasonable job of keeping Ingram in check, restraining the bulldozing eighth-year back to his second-lowest yards per carry average since Week 8 (4.7 YPC). Ingram fielded a slightly lighter workload than he had through his first six appearances of 2018 -- 11 carries, compared to average of 13.2 -- as Alvin Kamara collected 15 of the 28 running back touches in New Orleans' 10th-straight win. Another Thursday night matchup awaits in Week 13, as Ingram and the Saints travel to Dallas to take on the NFL's No. 5 rush defense (95.0 yards allowed per game).
Ingram rushed 16 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-7 victory over the Eagles.
Ingram burst by the right end for a 14-yard score to put the Saints up 17-0 early in the second quarter and later converted from the one to seal the blowout in the third. While the Alabama product wasn't targeted in the passing game, he tied his season high in carries and saw two more touches than Alvin Kamara on the day. Despite the timeshare, Ingram now has rushed for over 100 yards in back-to-back games and is a threat to do so again with an excellent Week 12 matchup at home against the Falcons on Thanksgiving.
Ingram rushed for 104 yards on 13 carries and added 58 yards and a touchdown on three catches during Sunday's 51-14 win over the Bengals.
Ingram broke a 7-7 tie early in the second quarter after slipping into the flat on a play-action pass and spinning through the defense on his way to a 28-yard touchdown, snapping a three-game scoreless streak. He added two runs of at least 25 yards on the day. Though he's averaged just under 15 touches per game this season, it's easy for Ingram to get lost in the shuffle behind star stablemate Alvin Kamara like he did against the Rams in Week 9. Sunday showed that the veteran back still has a spring in his step. Given recent season-ending injuries in the receiving corps to Dez Bryant (Achilles) and Cam Meredith (knee), look for the Saints to continue to lean on the backfield both in the running and passing games. That should keep a steady flow of opportunities for Ingram. Next up is a Philly defense surrendering 4.5 yards per carry on the year.
