How Julian Edelman Pulled Off One of the Craziest Catches in Super Bowl History

    “I don’t know how he caught it. I don’t think he does either.”

    That’s New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Jewish teammate Julian Edelman’s physics-defying catch during the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LI on Sunday night won by the Pats in overtime, 34-28.
