Julian Edelman was unfailingly at his best when it mattered the most


Julian Edelman’s instantly legendary catch in the Super Bowl LI comeback against the Falcons – right, that one, when the ball ricocheted off assorted limbs before he scooped it just as it was about to fall to the turf – occurred later than you might remember, with the Patriots still trailing by 8 points and just 2 minutes 24 seconds remaining in regulation. There’s no greatest comeback evah! without it

His winning touchdown against the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX – yes, Edelman gets credited with the win, and Malcolm Butler the save – came with just 2 minutes and 2 seconds remaining and the Patriots down by 4.
