  • The New Orleans Saints received yet another memorable performance from their running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in the team’s Week 10 47-10 defeat of the Buffalo Bills. Ingram ended the game with an ‘elite’  game grade of 92.8, while Kamara ended the game with a grade of 88.3, good for first and second among running backs this week, respectively.
  • Playing 37-of-77 offensive snaps, Ingram put in one of the best rushing performances of the season, carrying the ball 21 times for 131 yards and three touchdowns. He averaged an impressive 4.86 yards after contact per attempt, the second best mark among backs this week, and forced five missed tackles in the process. His run grade of 93.0 is tops among backs this week, and is the third-best run grade of the season.
  • Meanwhile, Kamara logged 29 offensive snaps and carried the ball 12 times for 106 yards and one touchdown, and added five catches for a further 32 yards. On 17 combined touches as a rusher and a receiver, Kamara forced eight missed tackles, resulting in an elusive rating of 145.1, the best mark among running backs this week.
  • The duo have arguably become the best backfield combination in the NFL, and through 10 weeks, they have combined for 1,654 yards from scrimmage and 13 scores, both the most among the league’s 32 backfield tandems.
