New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker made his presence known in the team's AFC Divisional matchup with the Houston Texans when he reeled in an eye-popping pass from quarterback Tom Brady




The one-handed catch was good for 47 yards and placed the Patriots in a great position to score. Welker is known for his highlight reel catches, but this may be one of his best—and most important. 

It was not a scoring play, but it is certainly one of the top highlights so far from the 2012 AFC Divisional Round.
