Mark Ingram believes he is playing his best football since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2011.
Ingram is averaging 4.82 YPC over the past seven games after managing just 2.9 in the first seven. "It's funny; I think he is one of those backs that he gets stronger as the game goes on," interim coach Joe Vitt said. Ingram forced five missed tackles and averaged 4.8 yards after contact per attempt against the league's No. 1 run defense last week.
