Stat Line: 10 catches, 150 yards, two touchdowns
The most iconic game of Welker's career came in arguably the most frustrating Patriots season in recent memory. The Pats were coming off a disappointing, 20-17, loss to the Broncos, and seemed to lack the Patriot magic of years past.
But in an early-season snow storm and throwback red jerseys, Welker put up his best game of the 2009 season, as the Patriots rolled over the Titans 59-0.
This performance embodies what made Welker such a dynamic player. Most of the big plays he made in his career were not of the Randy Moss-spectacular variety. Instead he was a consistent player who would always get open and move the chains, especially in big regular-season games that the Patriots needed to win.
In 93 career regular-season games, Welker was held under five catches just 18 times. In nine career playoff games, he never had less than six.
Welker was a legendary Patriot who, like Adam Vinatieri, will close out his career on a different roster. But nothing can detract from the hundreds of catches Welker made for the Patriots, and just how much he meant to the team in his six short years in New England.
One day, when he's inducted into the Patriots Hall, Patriots fans will forget about the time he spent in Denver with Peyton Manning. Until then they'll have all the outstanding performances like the ones listed here to remember him by.
