METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Marques Colston's latest big game came without warning, which is precisely the way the New Orleans Saints like it.
New Orleans' offense, which ranks sixth in the NFL, isn't helping many of its skill players pile up Pro Bowl-type stats. But the approach of coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees has enabled a wide range of play-makers to emerge periodically with high-production outings.
Colston had 125 yards receiving and two touchdowns in a victory over Carolina on Sunday night. In his two previous games combined, Colston had only 67 yards and no TDs.
This week, figuring out how to prepare for Brees' equitable distribution of the football is a task for St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher. He describes New Orleans' versatile attack as a ''championship offense.''
