Patriots Over Rams 13-3 & Patriots WR Julian Edelman Named Super Bowl LIII MVP

Atlanta, GA...In the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history, there was no clear player -- on offense, defense or special teams -- to whom to award the Most Valuable Player. Such was the nature of the New England Patriotscomplementary victory. But someone had to claim the prize and, on Sunday evening, that man was Julian Edelman.

"I wasn't focused on [winning the MVP]," Edelman told CBS's Jim Nantz on the victors' podium following New England's 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII. "I was just trying to go out and have a good week of practice and do my job. Sometimes the cookie crumbles that way."

The diminutive receiver finished with a game-high 10 catches for 141 yards. Always in the right place in the right time, eight of Edelman's receptions led to first-down pick-ups.

Though seven of Edelman's 10 receptions came in the first half, when New England scored just three points, his final grab was the second play on the Patriots' five-play game-winning touchdown drive midway through the fourth quarter.

In winning the MVP award, Edelman became just the second Patriots player not named Tom Brady to secure the honor (Deion Branch, *bleep*IX).

"He deserves it," Brady told Nantz on the podium about Edelman's accolade. "That was one of the best games he ever played."

As with most of the Patriots on Sunday's roster, Edelman was no stranger to the Big Game. This was his fourth appearance in the Super Bowl and the third in which he's played a major role. Edelman caught the game-winning touchdown in New England's win over the Seattle Seahawks. His acrobatic fingertip grab in the fourth quarter of the Patriots' win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI was the iconic moment of an historic comeback.

But Edelman was sidelined for the Patriots' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last season, kept off the team all year by a torn ACL. He was also missing for New England's first four games of 2018, but for non-injury related reasons. Edelman was suspended for the season's first quarter for violating the league's PED policy.

When he returned, Edelman was Brady's top target, his younger brother again, racking up 74 receptions, 850 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 12 games of work.

In the postseason, the 5-foot-10 former Kent State QB played larger than life once again.

Edelman finished the 2019 postseason with 26 receptions for 388 receiving yards in three Patriots victories. The MVP bestowed to him on Sunday night was for his decisive route-running and clutch conversions against the Rams in Atlanta, but it could also be viewed as a postseason, or even a lifetime, achievement award.

By going over 100 yards for the sixth time in his postseason career, Edelman tied Cowboys legend Michael Irvin for the second-most 100-yard postseason games all-time (seven). They are second only to the inimitable Jerry Rice with eight.

That's esteemed company, company that would suggest that Edelman is an all-time great and bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, where the busts of Irvin and Rice already reside, when his time comes.

That is a conversation for another day. Tomorrow, perhaps.

"It just matters that we won, man," Edelman told Nantz as the confetti poured down from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium roof. "It was a crazy year. We've got a resilient bunch of guys. It was unreal, man. It was like a home game here. We love you guys here. It was awesome."

The Patriiots proved Making America Great Again is right on target. In a nation where the Snowflakes herald mediocrity, the Patriots prove time and time again, to beat the best, you have to be the best! I loved it, a Snowflake, liberal from Berkely couldn't even eek out a win for the Snowflakes, sorry, next year or maybe after Trump gets done getting out of the mess Barry left us with, your 49 whiners or beaner Raider's might have a chance! Go Patriot's!

    LOL. Trump is such a failure his supporters have to pretend that the Patriot's success somehow indicates a Trump success. The barrel of Trump accomplishments is truly empty.

    BTW, the good economy, low unemployment and good stock market all reflect trends that date back to Obama's first term. Look it up. The only trend changes during Trump's presidency are that in 2018 the stock market was flat and the annual deficit increased.

    Just because Trump lies continuously does not mean the rest of us believe his lies (or yours).

        Oooohh. You called the previous president Obozo. That is sooooo powerful. If you were six years old you'd be the terror of the playground.

        And another Trump supporter finds himself with no factual response and therefore resorts to name calling.

      Worst Super Bowl ever! The highlight of the show was when Adam Levine took his shirt off and exposed his nipples.
