Saints film study: Mark Ingram runs wild on 49ers - Canal Street Chronicles
Breakdown of yards gained on the 15 carries for 158 yards:
1st Quarter: 4
2nd Quarter: 7, 3, 75, 4
3rd Quarter: 19, 0, 0
4th Quarter: 14, 11, 4, 2, 3, 7, 5
Even if you take out the big 75-yard touchdown out of the equation, Ingram averaged 5.92 yards per carry against the 49ers run defense. Obviously, they were the worst run defense in the NFL coming in, but that doesn’t mean the offensive line and Ingram didn’t do their job.
2nd Quarter (75-yard touchdown run): Just about everything goes right on this play, as Ingram gets two key blocks from Jahri Evans and a big one from Zach Strief. Senio Kelemete pulls and negates his defender from getting into the backfield. The open lane they generate is a thing of beauty.
