Cesar Tordesillas – 4E Sports Contributor

Philadelphia, PA, United States (4E Sports) – Mark Ingram rushed 18 times for 97 yards and a touchdown to lead the New Orleans Saints to a 26-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

Nick Foles hit rookie Zach Ertz for a 3-yard touchdown with 4:54 remaining as the Eagles rallied from a 13-point deficit to take a 24-23 lead in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs.

With 4:44 left Ingram and rookie Khiry Robinson helped seal the win with a methodical, clock-killing drive. Robinson rushed for 45 yards in his first playoff game.

Drew Brees guided a 34-yard drive towards Shayne Graham’s 32-yard field goal that won the game on the final play.

The Saints (12-5) were without injured running back Pierre Thomas and lost linebacker Parys Haralson late in the second quarter to a chest injury and cornerback Keenan Lewis in the third quarter with a likely concussion.

They will play at NFC top-seed Seattle next Saturday.
