Sean Payton didn't like the balance of the New Orleans Saints offense in the Week 2 loss to the New York Giants.

Despite the Saints being within a one-score margin for the duration of the game, they ran the ball just 13 times compared to their 46 pass plays. Two weeks into the season, the Saints have just 35 rushing attempts, and Washington is the only team with fewer attempts (29).

For running back Mark Ingram, the solution to the lack of running plays sounds simple enough in theory.

"I feel like the offensive line has been doing a great job in the run game," he said after the game. "We just have to call them and execute them, give the coaches confidence where we can go out there and be effective in the run game."
