Ingram, Mack among NFL Players of the Week - NFL.com
The Saints routed the Rams, 49-21, to keep their slim playoff hopes alive -- and a lot of it had to do with Mark Ingram's big day.
Ingram won NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for Week 12 after toting the ball 14 times for 146 yards and a score, as well as one catch for 21 yards and another touchdown.
That Ingram did this against a stout Rams defense is all the more impressive. He proved difficult to take down, using his shiftiness to evade tackles and gash Los Angeles for big gains. It was only Ingram's second 100-yard rushing game of the season.
