It wasn't a great day by Wes Welker standards -- 3 catches, 14 yards -- but it was just enough.
Just enough to enable him to tie Troy Brown for most career receptions (557) in Patriots history.
"I knew it was close," Welker told Brown, Michael Felger and Ty Law on 'Postgame Live'. "I wasn't sure exactly what I needed . . . "
And he was suitably humbled.
"But it's an honor just to be in the same sentence as Troy Brown." Welker said. "He's been such a great Patriot for so long here and done a lot of great things, and he'll go down as the best Patriot to ever play receiver here."
