Collins was targeted once and ran hard till he was brought down by a couple of defenders managing a 6-yard gain.

2013 Week 5 vs CHI (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)

Jed Collins was targeted on the first drive catching a swing pass out of the backfield for 5 yards and a first down. Collins had another red-zone target that fell incomplete in the end zone. In the Saints' first TD drive, Collins caught his second pass and stretched out for the goal line, but came up two yards short as he gained five yards. It was his third target inside the ten-yard line. He continued to be heavily featured in the conservative play calling getting four receptions on five targets and rushing the ball three times. This game was likely the career high for Jed Collins being discussed in a telecast and he was a definite positive factor in the Saints' victory.

2013 Week 6 vs NE (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Jed Collins caught a pass for a short gain that converted a first down. That was his only target in the game. Late in the Saints' final scoring drive, he had a carry for a one yard gain.

Jed Collins had one carry and ran well behind good blocking for a gain of 7 yards taking the Saints into the red zone. His other play was one of the gameís lowlights for the Saints. Collins was targeted on a 3rd and 1 yard to go and should have easily converted the first down, but flat out dropped the pass. The Saints went for it on 4th down and failed to convert, which was a huge turning point on the game.

2013 Week 10 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2013 Week 18 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2012 Week 12 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 1 rec)

Collins' first catch was a dump off by Brees, as the quarterback was unable to find anyone downfield. The second catch was more significant, as Brees executed a play-action rollout to his right and threw to Collins in a gap created by the play action. With a linebacker rushing Brees and the coverage in the end zone, Collins was able to catch the short pass in space and dive over the goal line for the touchdown.

2012 Week 13 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 2 / 0 rec)

2011 Week 8 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)

2011 Week 15 vs MIN (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Collins did not vulture any TDs in this game, but did get a couple of touches just to keep the defense honest.
