Orlando Scandrick holds up well

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England wide receiver Wes Welker came into Sunday’s game averaging nine catches for 148 yards and a touchdown per game.

He was “held” to three catches and 103 yards below his average but he still managed a touchdown.

“I knew it was going to be a challenge,” Scandrick said. “He’s not one of those guys where you watch film and know what he runs because all of his routes have second options between him and Tom [Brady]. I felt like I did well. I don’t know what the stats was on him, but I feel like I did well.”

Scandrick missed the previous three games because of a high ankle sprain suffered in the season opener. Sunday marked the first time the Cowboys’ top three corners – Scandrick, Mike Jenkins and Terence Newman – played in the same game

“I’m good,” Scandrick said of his ankle. “I feel great. No pain.”
