Five things to take from Saints’ first win

(Continued)

NEW ORLEANS — 4. ACTION JACKSON: Steven Jackson looks like he still has plenty to contribute as he begins his 10th season. In what was also his debut with Atlanta, he accounted for 122 offensive yards. He gained 77 on the ground on 11 carries, including a 50-yard run. He added 45 yards on five receptions. He only wished he could have held on to one last pass his way at the goal line on Atlanta's final drive. It was broken up by linebacker Ramon Humber.

5. PRACTICE?: Colston, the Saints' eighth-year receiver, missed most of the preseason while recovering a left foot injury.

    That didn't stop him from being one of Brees' most productive receivers in the regular season opener. Colston caught five passes for 68 yards, starting with a 25-yard TD on a diving catch which also gave Colston a franchise record 533 receptions.
