Ingram-Kamara tandem blossoms in Saints' win over Lions

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been hurting this week because of an ankle injury

The New Orleans Saints will be back at home for the first time in three weeks as they take on the Detroit Lions. They turned the ball over too many times on offense and couldn't stop the run on defense.

Prediction: This could be a close game for both teams, but the Saints will win, 30-23.

Matthew Stafford injured his ankle last week against the Carolina Panthers, but he will play through the pain against the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Stafford certainly wasn't at his best, but it is hard to imagine what quarterback could have succeeded behind Detroit's patchwork offensive line. But in the meantime, Stafford can't take many more hits like this-and Detroit can't afford to be giving Drew Brees and the Saints extra touchdowns. The Lions also beat the Saints by fifteen points last season in the Superdome, so they have definitely been down this road before.

"Like I mentioned yesterday, if we were playing a Thursday game it'd be really tough or even a Sunday game would be fairly tough, but this comes at a great time for us", said Caldwell.

In the end, when the video game went tilt, Payton was perturbed.

"That's what we've been missing as a team", Jordan said.

New Orleans quickly jumped out to a 7-0 lead when Stafford was sacked in the end zone, fumbled while going down and the ball was recovered by the Saints' Kenny Vaccaro for a touchdown with 11:02 to go in the opener. With Golden Tate suffering a shoulder injury in the third quarter and the Lions down big, Jones dominated work in garbage time, although he was only able to catch three of his nine targets in the second half. Mark Ingram had 114 yards and two touchdowns, while Alvin Kamara added 75 more yards on just 10 carries. "If we keep doing that, it's going to be a long season".

"I've got to be better than that", he said.

Ingram's top performance this season until Sunday was a 14-carry, 56-yard showing against the Carolina Panthers on September 24. "Ever since I've been here, we'd win one, lose one, win two, lose three in a row".

There were plenty of errors for the Lions on Sunday, who fell behind 45-10 midway through the third quarter. The Lions came into the game allowing only 74 yards rushing a game.

Ameer Abdullah had a 34-yard gain, but picked up only 20 yards on his other 13 rushes, while Theo Riddick's impact came in the passing game. A Stafford touchdown pass was followed by a Mark Ingram fumble, and the Lions capitalized with another touchdown from Stafford, who is renowned for his ability to pull Detroit back from the brink. It is not clear how serious Tate's injury is, and the Lions are on bye next week.
