Why wasn't Welker targeted more in first game

Wes Welker puts food on the table by making receptions. He's done it for a while and is one of the best in the NFL at it. But on Sunday, he didn't get many opportunities.

Welker was targeted just five times against the Titans. Is there any reason to make a big deal out of this? Probably not . . . but it's worth noting anyways.

Perhaps it was just a case of the other players being more open. Or . . . the Patriots are sticking it to Welker for not agreeing to that franchise tag sooner! Kidding.

Tom E. Curran and Ron Borges talk about Welker's day.
