Patriots WR Wes Welker Breaks One NFL Record, Ties Another Vs Dolphins
Wes Welker caught 10 of his game-high 12 receptions in the first half to help the Patriots get out to a lead they would never relinquish in a 23-16 win. He finished with 103 receiving yards and a touchdown and in the process, he went over 1,000 yards for the season, marking the fifth time he accomplished the feat.
That was the 17th time in his career with 10 or more, tying him with 49ers legend and Hall of Famer Jerry Rice for most in NFL history.
‘’Any time you’re in the same sentence as Jerry Rice on anything, it’s definitely something to take pride in,’’ Welker said following the win. ‘’But, at the same time, you’ve just got to move forward and keep playing and keep on trying to do well.’’
For good measure, Welker also set the NFL record for 10-plus catch games that also included 100-plus receiving yards, as he now has 16. He’s been the model of consistency in his five-plus seasons as a Patriot, since arriving via trade from Miami.
‘’I definitely pride myself on it,’’ Welker said. ‘’I always try to show up and just do my job on a consistent basis. That’s definitely a key part.’’
