The Saints walked into Arizona and picked up their first road victory over the Cardinals since 2000 by defeating Bruce Arians’ team 48-41. The team improved to 6-8, and remains mathematically alive in the Wild Card hunt, but that could quickly change should the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Washington Redskins win.
However, it was this sideline tirade by Mark Ingram that has us all talking. After being taken out of the game with the offense on the goal line, Tim Hightower would punch the ball in to extend the Saints lead to 48-34. The FOX crew picked up some displeasure from the Saints running back.

When asked about the sideline incident, head coach Sean Payton respectfully declined to answer by saying, ‘next question’.
According to reporters, Ingram said his reaction was just him being competitive. Either way, the Saints won in an impressive offensive display after being missing in action for the past two games.
