CLEVELAND (AP) - Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker has kicked an extra point in New England's game against Cleveland. Welker, forced into kicking duty because Stephen Gostkowski suffered a thigh injury in the first half, drilled his kick to bring the Patriots within 27-14 with 6:37 left.
He then kicked a pop-up to Browns return man Joshua Cribbs on the ensuing kickoff.
It's the first time Welker has kicked since 2004, when he made a field goal and extra point as a rookie for Miami.
Gostkowski seemed to injure himself on a kickoff in the first half. He spent the remainder of the game on the sideline.
