With everything that changes in the NFL from week to week the Patriots have one player they can count on to be consistent week in and week out — Wes Welker.
Welker continued his impressive season Sunday in the Patriots 31-19 victory over the Raiders. The shifty receiver caught nine passes for 158 yards and a touchdown.
He has proven to be Tom Brady’s favorite target, and the guy Brady looks to when he is under pressure. Welker seems to have the best connection out of any other receiver with Brady. The quarterback always seems to know where Welker is on the field, and isn’t afraid to throw the ball to him looking for him to make a play.
