Welker sets new franchise receiving mark

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- With his 16th catch in Sunday's game, Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker set a new franchise single-game record with 217 receiving yards.

Welker topped the previous record of 214 yards (on 13 catches) set by Terry Glenn on Oct. 3, 1999 in Cleveland.

Welker already topped his own career highs of 15 catches and 192 yards -- both set against the New York Jets on Nov. 22, 2009.
