Wes Welker caught nine passes for 84 yards today. At this point, the appropriate reaction would be, "Ho-hum." He now leads the Patriots with 55 receptions, and he provides Tom Brady with a staggeringly consistent target. Going back to the London game, Welker has caught 19 of the last 20 balls thrown his way.

After the game, Welker was asked about having caught more than 50 passes in all three of seasons with the Patriots. "It's actually the fourth," Welker said, adding on the year before he came to New England. "But who's counting?" Welker chuckled and continued, "It's definitely humbling. But at the same time, you just go out there and do your job on a daily basis."
