One of the biggest plays of the Patriots 34-3 win over the Chiefs was Julian Edelman’s 72-yard punt return. His winding, darting, dodging return made up for an uneven offensive performance and put the game out of reach.
And the fact that Edelman made it happen himself at the start was even more impressive. And he’s just been honored for it.
The Patriots announced that Edelman was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. In all, Edelman had two returns for 81 yards, while also making a tackle and drawing a holding penalty as a defensive back in the dime package. Really.
Not a bad day.
