ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Theres no longer any bad blood between Bill Belichick and Wes Welker heading into the showdown Sunday between the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.Belichick said he has long gotten over Welkers hit that sidelined then-Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib in the AFC championship.At the time, New Englands often cantankerous coach called it one of the worst plays hed seen in nearly four decades of coaching and asked the NFL to look into it.The league ruled the hit was legal.Way past that, Belichick said in a conference call with Denver media Wednesday. I have a lot of respect for Wes and what he did for us and what hes done for the Broncos and what hes done throughout his career.Welker took out Talib, now his teammate in Denver, on a pick play at the line of scrimmage in the second quarter of Denvers 26-16 victory in January. Talib went to the locker room with a bruised knee and didnt return.With the Patriots best cover player out, Peyton Manning finished with 400 yards passing and two TDs — nearly 300 of those yards coming with Talib sidelined.When Talib signed a free agent deal with Denver this spring, he called Welker, a good friend of mine, and said, I watched that play 1,000 times and I can promise you he didnt do it on purpose.Welker, who played six seasons in New England before coming to Denver in 2013, got over the brouhaha even faster than his old boss.I moved on to getting ready for the Super Bowl, Welker said Wednesday. So, its the same for me. Its in the past and Im just really kind of looking forward to this game.Hes hoping its better than his homecoming last year, when his muffed punt in overtime led to New Englands 34-31 win in overtime.Welker said hes probably a little more comfortable with it this time around as the Broncos (6-1) prepare to face the Patriots (6-2). Im just so excited about the opportunity and a big game like this.The forecast for wintery weather has helped him stay focused this week.No, I havent had to get any tickets. So I think a lot of that is people like visiting Denver where its warmer weather, and they saw the forecast in Foxborough and said, Well, I dont think Ill be heading there, Welker said.Welker just doesnt want to have to return to New England in January.Obviously its still early but at the same time, theyre all big games, especially when it comes down to home-field advantage, he said. Theyre really big and you have to make sure that youre treating these games as playoff-type games.Manning vs. Brady XVI features two quarterbacks coming off monster months in which they each threw for 14 touchdowns.Mannings 127.4 passer rating in October was second only to Tom Bradys 129.1 — which came on the heels of the Patriots 41-14 wipeout at Kansas City that had many fans saying the Patriots dynastic days were history.Since then, the Patriots have won four straight.Im not surprised at all at Bradys bounce-back, Welker said. Ive seen it 100 times there where its one bad week and everythings falling apart. So, its one week and you can never really judge anything off that and you knew they were going to bounce back from it.Welker has a unique perspective of having been on both sides of Manning vs. Brady.Theyre both the best in the game right now and Im obviously very fortunate to get to play with both, Welker said.Welker isnt having the same kind of season he enjoyed last year. After five 100-catch seasons in New England, Welker was leading the Broncos with 73 catches for 778 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2013 before missing most of the final month with a concussion. He returned for the playoffs and caught 18 passes for 160 yards and a TD.This year, he has 19 catches for 181 yards and one touchdown.He caught just two passes for 5 yards in Denvers last game, a 35-21 win over San Diego. But Manning called his second one the catch of the game, because it came on third-and-4 from Denvers 10 with 3:29 left.Would I want the ball more? Yes. (But) as long as were winning games and were being productive on offence and doing those things, Im good with however we get that done, Welker said. Its kind of strange being, I feel like, the weak link of our offence.If Im the weak link, were going to be OK. Im excited about the guys we have and the camaraderie that we have together and really pulling for each other.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Cheap Nike Shoes Ireland .com) - Colorado forward P.

Next up, the real thing -- in his home park. Dozier had his first career multihomer game to get cranked up for the derby and the Minnesota Twins beat the Rockies 13-5 on Sunday. "A little momentum going into it," the second baseman said of Mondays contest. At 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, Dozier doesnt exactly consider himself a basher of the baseball. But he lined a solo homer in the eighth off Adam Ottavino and added a three-run shot an inning later when Brooks Brown served him a 94-mph fastball. Doziers hoping he can carry that swing over to the contest. His brother is even flying in pitch to him. "Its going to be fun," said Dozier, who has 18 homers this season. However, hes not so sure he will even receive the biggest ovation at the contest even if its at Target Field. He thinks the return of Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau, who came up with the Twins, will draw quite a few roars, too. Morneau also was picked to participate in the derby. "Thats going to be really exciting," Dozier said. Late fill-in Chris Parmelee gave the Twins an early lead as he ignited a five-run first inning with a two-run single. He replaced outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who was scratched with the flu. The run support turned out to be enough for Phil Hughes (10-5), who picked up his 10th win despite allowing five runs and 10 hits in five innings. It was his first appearance at Coors Field. "Didnt like it very much," Hughes joked of the hitter friendly park. "I didnt have my best stuff or command or anything really going today." Neither did Brett Anderson (0-3). He was rusty in his first outing since April. He allowed six runs -- five earned -- in five innings. The lefty has been sidelined since breaking his left index finger on April 12 while batting. "My stuff was terrible, pretty much," Anderson said. "Ill put this one behind me. I feel good about staying healthy and go to my next one." Minnesota finished a seven-game road swing with a 5-2 record and head into the All-Starr break trailing the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers by 10 1-2 games.ddddddddddddDozier thinks the team is in a good spot heading into the second half, especially considering they begin with a 10-game home stand. "We knew coming into this series, or this whole road trip, not really make-or-break, but a huge test what were going to do after the break, whether buy or sell," Dozier said. "I want to try to do everything to contend. "In all of our opinions, we think were good enough." Hughes was able to stave off the Rockies after being staked to an early lead. Colorado trimmed the deficit to 6-5 in Hughes last inning, when Morneau scored on Corey Dickersons groundout. Sam Fuld provided some breathing room in the seventh when he brought home a run with a sacrifice fly. Parmelee then added another run when he ran home on a passed ball. Dozier increased the lead in the eighth with his homer that was just inside the foul pole in left. He then hit another an inning later, giving the Twins a season-high 18 hits. Nolan Arenado and Morneau each had three hits for the Rockies, who head into the break 13 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. "I think its important to get a breather here," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Its the only time for six, seven months that were able to do that. But when the second half starts we need to play with a sense of urgency. "I was hoping we could get this series going into the break. Didnt happen." NOTES: Dozier has 69 runs this season. The last Twins player to have more than 68 runs at the break was Rod Carew (70) in 1977. ... Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said INF Danny Santana (left knee) should be ready to return soon after the All-Star break. ... Gardenhire will use right-handers Kyle Gibson, Kevin Correia and Hughes in a three-game series against Tampa Bay beginning Friday. ... RHP Jordan Lyles (broken left hand) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Weiss said recent X-rays showed Lyles hand "needed a little bit more time." Weiss also said Lyles was involved in a minor car accident Friday night and suffered some facial injuries. ' ' '
