Aqib Talib, the New England cornerback who is among the best at his position in the NFL, was knocked out of the AFC Championship game on a pick that was set by little Wes Welker. Yes, the same Welker who has a concussion history and is dwarfed by Talib (5-foot-10, 185 vs. 6-foot-1, 205). It appeared to be an injury to Talib’s ribs. The pick didn’t draw a penalty, but as a Buffalo Bills safety noted, it looked like a “suicide mission.”
Looked like Welker was on a suicide mission on that route. Unreal pick he set, not sure how not a flag.
