While Brady was hailed for scripting a record comeback, several social media users blamed Saints running back for their loss. 

New Orleans led 16-3 with 5:34 remaining, when Ingram caught a wide open pass  but ran out of bounds 1 yard short of the marker. The team then opted for a short throw. The pass was incomplete and clock stopped.

Brady and co then started at their own nine-yard line and soon found the endzone. A pass to Rachaad White in the final seconds of the game ensured Tampa Bay a win. 

“Hurt or not, a pro with the experience Ingram has needs to have better situational awareness on that play. Take a dive towards the sticks if you have to but don’t run out of bounds when you’re that close to the sticks with the game at a critical point,” a Twitter user said.

“Ingram going out of bounds cost them that game,” another one said. 

One social media user pointed out that Ingram hurt his knee on the prior drive after being tackled.

“I don’t know why they put him back in the game after this when Kamara is better & Ingram clearly was injured,” he asked. 

The Bucs (6-6) extended their division lead over the Atlanta Falcons to 1½ games. The last-place Saints (4-9) missed out on opportunity to pull into a tie for second with the Falcons.
