“The thing is, Wes Welker, he’s the type of receiver to where if you’re lined up outside, he’ll run inside. Him and Peyton have option routes,” Wolff explained.

This is the same play Ted broke down earlier in the week, but it's great to learn what the player was thinking. Be sure to check out the article though, as there's analysis on several plays from Sunday's win. (via FO)
