OAKLAND, Calif. — New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston, who needs one more touchdown to set the franchise record for a career, reached a different milestone in Sunday’s 38-17 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Colston went into the game needing four catches to reach 500 for his seven-year career. He got there on a 15-yard reception from Drew Brees early in the fourth quarter.

Colston is only the third player in franchise history to have 500 catches, joining Eric Martin (532) and Joe Horn (523).

Brees moves up
Brees threw for 219 yards and moved up another spot on the NFL’s all-time passing yardage list in the first quarter when he passed Drew Bledsoe for eighth place.

Brees, who started the season in 11th place, now has 43,808 yards to Bledsoe’s 44.611. He also extended his two NFL-record streaks in throwing a touchdown pass in his 53rd straight game and stretching his streak with 20 completions to 46 games.

Mack gets shot
Cornerback Elbert Mack, who’s been released several times this season, played as the nickel back with White sidelined. On his first play, Mack made a nice open-field tackle on Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater after a third-down catch — forcing a punt on their opening possession.

I have to say that Elbert Mack stood out in a good way yesterday. If he can keep it up, he'd definitely be an asset for us on a weekly basis. You can see why they have been keeping tabs on him throughout the year on the wire.

Mack looked like a natural ball hawk when he jumped that route

That was a tough catch to make and even a sure handed WR would have struggled to make the catch but I like the aggressiveness he showed and the quick reactions to jump the route and nearly make the pick

On another note, I now understand why corey white starts infront of johnny patrick

J.Patrick is just turrible, turrible as charles barkley would say

I agree about Elbert Mack. The only issue I had with him is that when he took off his helmet, he reminded me of this guy: Durka, durka. Muhammad Jihad.
