Saints Vs. 49ers, NFL Playoffs: Marques Colston Makes Stunning TD Catch

The New Orleans Saints have officially recovered from their first quarter meltdown. For the second consecutive drive, Drew Brees looked like the record-setting, All-Pro Drew Brees of previous games. He's now 20-25 after a bad start, with the best of the 20 being the touchdown pass to Marques Colston that capped off the Saints' latest drive. The San Fransisco 49ers now lead 17-14 after jumping out to an early 17-0 lead.

Now, an interlude for America's favorite game show, 'Does Jimmy Graham have a concussion?'. He took a whack to the head on the Saints' first drive, went back to the locker room and returned to the game. His head hit the turf on his touchdown catch and he missed the early part of the touchdown drive, but returned to the field. I'm confused too.

Here's the 25-yard Brees to Colston touchdown pass, a thing of beauty.
