Welker only finished with one catch, but it kept a late drive alive for the Broncos and allowed Talib to ice the game with his pick-six. It is the fifth in the last six years for Talib, behind Charles Tillman’s six during that time.
It’s cliche, but in the big moments you need your best players to rise to the occasion, and the two who did that for Denver were Welker and Talib.
It wasn’t pretty, but there aren’t style points for wins. All that matters is the Broncos are 4-1 and found a way to win another tight game.
