Two quick quotes from Wes Welker, who apparently no one was interested in talking to after he was asked just two questions:

Wes, you snuck out here, so why don't you tell us about the game?

"Obviously it was a hard fought game.  It was definitely a tough one and luckily in  the end we were able to come away with the victory.  The defense stepped up big for us.  We had a lot of mistakes out there, but in the end we came away with the victory and that's what matters."

On the field conditions:

"You know what?  When you first get out there you're kind of thinking, this is terrible and everything.  But as you get playing and stuff, you get used to it. It kind of reminded me of the Patriots old stadium when we had the grass there so it was kind of like that."

"Everybody good?  I think everybody's with Gronk right now, so we'll see you all."
