Denver Broncos star: I must do better

Published Add your comment

Wes Welker has insisted that he must improve after being at fault for the Denver Broncos in their 34-31 defeat to the New England Patriots on Monday.

The wide receiver was responsible for the game-deciding turnover as Walker stood on his own 10-yard line as he awaited a punt from Ryan Allen.

However, after Allen's kick came up short, Welker failed to tell him teammates to stay clear of the landing zone which consequently led to Tony Carter taking the ball by surprise and after the The Patriots recovered, they then went on to take the game. 

And now Welker has admitted that he was at fault for his poor communication and has trageted improvement. 

As reported on, Welker said: "I just felt like there was a lot of traffic, it was a high ball, [I] basically didn't want to get into a situation where somebody's running into me or anything else, and ended up with a situation that I didn't want to happen in the first place.

"I gotta do a better job of getting up there and getting those guys out of the way, and making sure it doesn't hit them. I gotta get to him earlier and tell him, and get those guys out of the way if I'm not going to make the catch. I was a little bit in between and you can't be that way."

Welker and the Broncos will now be desperate to bounce back as they take on the Kansas City
Chiefs at the Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. 

The Chiefs will also be hoping for a response as they went down 41-38 to the San Diego Chargers at the Arrowhead Stadium yesterday.
