It turns out when you feed Mark Ingram, he is a really good running back. With Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas nursing injuries, Ingram has been eating up yardage with his quick feet and punishing running style.

Through the past two games he is averaging 27 touches and 136 yards running per game. What happens when Thomas and Robinson both come back? Stay with the hot hand. Ingram needs to continue to get about 25 touches to keep the train going.
