New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib left the AFC Championship game after colliding with Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker. It was spun by Welker as incidental, when it clearly looked like a pick. It looked closer to a safety hitting a wide receiver than accidental.

Patriots defensive end Andre Carter thinks it was intentional.

“Unfortunately, that was nasty,” Carter said, via the Boston Globe.  “I’m sure the NFL will review that and see what they can do to rectify those particular plays.  Fortunately, Talib was able to walk, but if it got a lot more serious, who knows what would’ve happened?

“If you step into the wrong place at the wrong time, it can be very devastating.  It looked like it was intentional.  But the NFL will review it and, hopefully, Talib will just heal and get ready for the following season.”
