Julian Edelman Keeps it off the turf in SB LI

A display of grit and extreme concentration led to an otherworldly catch that helped the Patriots pull off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. In Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium in Houston in February 2017, the Patriots had scored 17 unanswered second-half points, but were still down, 28-20, with 2:28 left in the fourth quarter – and needed a touchdown and a 2-point conversion just to tie it. On a first down and 10 from the New England 36, Brady caught the snap out of the shotgun and threw a pass down the middle intended for receiver Julian Edelman near the Falcons’ 45. But Atlanta cornerback Robert Alford, who’d already returned an interception for a touchdown, was all over it and – in what easily could have been another pick – tipped the ball high into the air. Now the ball was up for grabs between four players – three of them Falcons. Edelman dove at the 40 into a mishmash of Falcons’ arms and legs and then, as it was bobbled just inches off the turf, snatched it. The Patriots went on to tie the game and win it in overtime, 34-28, for their fifth Super Bowl title.
