Mark Ingram was only a few months old the last time the New Orleans Saints rushed for 242 yards as a team. He also was still in college at Alabama when Chris Ivory ran for 158 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2010.

I hope he kicks t in now. He can sign a league min contract with the saints for four to five years and become a hall of famer.
