Saints News, 12/16/15: Marques Colston Shows He's Not Done Yet in Saints' Win

From Mike Triplett: "It’s a team game, and it always will be a team game. So whether I’m contributing with receptions or contributing in the run game or whatever it may be ... it might be during the week helping the young guys out," said Colston, who stressed that it felt "good to get a team win” after the Saints had lost four straight this season. "It’s been a few weeks (since our last win), and I feel like the intensity and preparation hasn’t tailed off at all. If anything, it’s kind of turned up a notch," Colston said. "So to see it pay off in this way is big for us."
