New Orleans running back Mark Ingram said he needs to control his emotions better after he shouted at Saints coach Sean Payton during an National Football League game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
The Arizona Cardinals led the New Orleans Saints, 7-0, after this run in the first quarter.
Cooks, frustrated less than a month ago after getting no targets against the Los Angeles Rams, torched an Arizona secondary that has been one of the NFL's best for several years.
Brees' four touchdown connections went to Travaris Cadet, Michael Thomas, and twice to Brandin Cooks.
New Orleans needed every yard of that offense. In what could possibly be his final home game as a member of the Cardinals, Calais Campbell had a 53 yard scoop and score. If they could have played like this in the six games they lost by a combined 20 points, the Saints could easily be a nine-win team right now.
Ingram gained 78 yards on 17 carries, but did not score in the game. "It's not what we aspire to be, with the bar that we've set for ourselves", Brees said.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes $290m on first weekend
Disney has scheduled Star Wars: Episode VIII or December 2017 and another stand-alone movie, about a young Han Solo, for May 2018. Like the rebels in the Death Star trench run, Disney is hoping that " Rogue One " can "stay on target" this weekend.
Tim Hightower took Ingram's place on the field and scored on a 2-yard run as the Saints took a 48-34 lead with 3:27 left in the game.
The Saints (6-8) were officially eliminated from the playoffs after the Falcons beat the Niners 41-13. Although the Cardinals did look like they had a little more urgency at the end of the first half as quarterback Carson Palmer hit receiver J.J. Nelson for a touchdown pass.
Those are two games they'd like to put in the "win" column to close this campaign. But as we all know, that's not the case. Obviously, you lose a friend, a teammate, to a situation like that it's hard.
"A year after the Colts considered acquiring Saints coach Sean Payton, and a year after Payton signed a lucrative extension in New Orleans, a change of scenery is still possible".
Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald appeared in his 200th game for the Cardinals on Sunday, joining kicker Jim Bakken (234) as the only players to appear in 200 games with the Cardinals. The Cardinals were called for a blow to Brees' head.
