Welker back, Brady shines in Patriots 28-10 win
It was a short little pass over the middle, nothing special. Try telling that to the New England Patriots.
Wes Welker was back just seven months after tearing up his left knee, and Tom Brady wasted no time going to his favorite receiver in a 28-10 preseason victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.
On New England's second offensive play, Brady zipped a 6-yard pass to Welker. On the next play, they hooked up on a 14-yard completion. A third straight pass toward Welker was broken up by the Falcons, but the message was clear.
The NFL's most prolific pass-catcher over the last three years is back.
