Wes Welker joined CSNNE's Patriots Postgame Show to talk about the team's win over the Broncos and the Patriots hurry-up offense. He also got in a playful shot at his coach, Bill Belichick.
CSNNE's Mike Felger asked Welker how it felt to come out and grab 13 balls on Sunday compared to just the three receptions he had in Week 1.
"Yeah it's kind of nice to stick it in Bill's face once in a while," Welker said with a smile and wink. "So this is definitely a good one."
Football is coming.
