Marques Colston caught nine passes for 153 yards and a touchdown in a shootout loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, and almost all of his catches came in traffic when he knew he’d have to absorb a big hit.

Quarterback Drew Brees connected with Colston for conversions on third-and-17 conversion and third-and-14 plays.
