Week 14 explosion encouraging for Marques Colston owners

It remains to be seen if that performance was a one-hit wonder or the start of a trend, but Colston has been far too consistent and productive over the years to understimate him. Despite several weak games, he still has 56 catches for 721 yards and four touchdowns this year.
Week 15 foe St. Louis is mediocre against the pass, but stingy in the red zone, ranking 22nd in the NFL in passing yards surrendered (3,234) but eighth in touchdowns given up through the air (19).
