Welker Back, Brady Shines In Patriots 28-10 Win

View Comments

[photogallerylink id=39413 align=right]New England’s offense looks just fine, especially with Wes Welker back at receiver. The Falcons’ defense appears to need more work.

Tom Brady threw for a touchdown, Fred Taylor ran for a score and the Patriots cruised past Atlanta 28-10 in a preseason game Thursday night.

Welker, who had 346 catches over the last three years, played for the first time since tearing up his left knee in January during the regular-season finale. Brady got him involved right away, completing passes of 6 and 14 yards on the second and third plays against the Falcons (1-1).

New England (2-0) scored on two of its three possessions with the first-team offense. Taylor had a 28-yard run, and Brady passed 4 yards to Aaron Hernandez for a touchdown.
