Go-to guy postgame, as well

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Wes Welker (10 receptions, 167 yards) answers some questions:

(On how frustrating it is to not finish games this year): “It’s really frustrating. We’ve always been a team that’s been able to overcome situations and fight through things, and we haven’t been able to do that.”

(On if the Dolphins changed their coverage in the second half to defend him): “Yeah, it was a little different. There were a couple of double-teams in there. They changed a few patterns. But overall they did a great job.”

(On if this was the toughest loss of the season): “Yes. I mean, it’s definitely up there. To have the opportunities we had and not finish is pretty disappointing. We have a long way to go. We all need to look at ourselves in the mirror and figure things out. We’re coming to play on a weekly basis and we need to make sure we’re doing our jobs the way it needs to be done.”

(On if he was glad to see the play call on his 58-yard reception): “Anytime you have a 58-yard play that’s a good thing. Glad we were able to get that play in. But you know we had a fourth and inches on that drive and didn’t convert, and we didn’t get any points out of that play. We didn’t finish the drive. In the end, it doesn’t really matter.”

(On if opponents are doing things to frustrate the Patriots in the red zone): “No, there’s only so many things you can do down there. It’s a matter of going out there and executing and we didn’t do that. It’s something we have to do and we have four more games to do that.”
