Hey, the only guy that did score a TD in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium was Sony Michelon a 2-yard run and really that was nowhere near what Julian Edelman did.
And that is why the New England Patriots wide receiver who opened the season with a four-game suspension, closed it as the Super Bowl MVP.
In a tight-fisted defensive affair, Edelman shined all night—catching 10 of 12 targets for 141-yards
"It's pretty surreal; tough times don't last, tough people do,'' Edelman said. "I preach that ... I have to try to live to that.''
Edelman is the seventh wide receiver to earn Super Bowl MVP honors and the first since Santonio Holmes in Super Bowl XLIII.Desmond Howard also won the game's MVP honors as a returner.
