Jim Donaldson of the Providence Journal writes about Wes Welker's record setting day in Buffalo. Welker tied a team record by catching 16 balls for a team record 217 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Patriots loss. Terry Glenn previously held the record for receiving yards at 214 yards, set in 1999 against Cleveland. Even with his big day Welker is still focused on the team. "We lost the game," he said. "That pretty much detracts from everything. What should be a great, fun day of breaking records and doing all those things, it's totally the opposite."
