Drew Brees, Mark Ingram sweep FedEx Air and Ground Player of the Week awards
The Saints continue to rack up FedEx awards.
And now they’re starting to double up. For the first time this season, the Saints swept the fan-voted FedEx Air and Ground awards, which results in a donation of $4,000 to the USO.
Drew Brees, who threw for 385 yards, two touchdowns and one interception to bring New Orleans back against Washington, won the FedEx Air award, and Mark Ingram won his fourth FedEx Ground award by rushing for 134 yards.
Brees and Ingram were also at their best when the Saints needed it most. On New Orleans’ final two drives, Brees completed 11-of-11 throws for 164 yards and two touchdowns to tie the game.
Then Ingram put it away, ripping off runs of 20 and 31 yards to set up Wil Lutz’s game-winning field goal.
