Ravens season in review: Mark Ingram
The Baltimore Ravens signed Mark Ingram Jr. in the off season of 2019 to a three-year contract. Ingram was brought in to be the feature running back and be a play maker. In Ingram’s first season as a Raven he was voted to the Pro Bowl for the third time in his career.
Ingram accomplished that right away, in his first game as a Raven he scored two touchdowns and rushed for 107 yards. Ingram continued to have success throughout the season.
Even at age 29, Ingram showed power and agility that had Ingram either running over defenders or straight up making them miss.
Despite a Ravens loss, Ingram scored three rushing touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs. Ingram’s worst game came against the Pittsburgh Steelers where he only averaged 2.32 rushing yards and five receiving yards.
One of Ingram’s best games came against the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Despite not scoring a touchdown Ingram had 115 yards in just 15 carries and 29 receiving yards.
Ingram was hurt during a game that would eventually become a meaningless game against the Cleveland Browns with a thigh injury.
Ingram would sit out in the Ravens final game due to the thigh injury but was likely to be sat anyway as the Ravens already locked up the number seed in the AFC.
Even with extra rest Ingram was clearly not 100% against the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs. Ingram was held to only 22 rushing yards and nine receiving yards. The Ravens would go on to lose that game against the Titans.
Overall, Ingram had a great first season with the Ravens. Ingram had 1018 rushing yards, 10 rushing touchdowns and four receiving touchdowns. Ingram was also a great locker room presence for the Ravens, showing great leadership. Ingram was well deserving of his Pro Bowl appearance.
