Mark Ingram named FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Mark Ingram had 172 rushing yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win against the Packers

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been named FedEx Ground Player of the Week, the league announced Thursday.

Ingram had career-highs of 24 rushes for 172 yards, including a season-long 28-yard run and a 21-yard fourth-quarter touchdown, in the Saints 44-23 win against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night.

It was the second 100-yard game of Ingram's career, and coincidentally, both have come on Sunday Night Football. Last year against Dallas, Ingram had 145 yards on 14 rushes.
