Edelman's unbelievable Super Bowl MVP winning stat


//

Julian Edelman has become just the second New England Patriots player not named Tom Brady to claim MVP honours in what was the lowest-scoring game in Super Bowl history.

In a defence heavy game the diminutive Edelman stood tall, finishing with a game-high 10 catches for 141 yards with eight of the receiver’s receptions leading to first-down pick-ups as the New England Patriots outlasted the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The victory secures a sixth Super Bowl title for the Patriots, and while perhaps not reaching the highs of previous years Edelman was humble in his assessment.

"I wasn't focused on [winning the MVP]," Edelman told CBS's Jim Nantz.

"I was just trying to go out and have a good week of practice and do my job. Sometimes the cookie crumbles that way.

“It wasn’t pretty, but I’ll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day.”

Patriots legend Tom Brady had nothing but praise for the MVP who initially started his career in the quarterback position before making the switch to wide-receiver primarily due to his size.

"He deserves it," Brady told CBS.

"That was one of the best games he ever played."

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

The victory, which moves the Patriots into a share of the all-time mark with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was also a record sixth Super Bowl triumph for Brady, who at 41 became the oldest quarterback to win the championship game.

"It was an unbelievable year," Brady told CBS on the field after the game.

"We just fought through it more so than anything. It's unbelievable to win this game.

No Super Bowl had gone into the fourth quarter without a touchdown. This one did, tied 3-3.

The game was a workmanlike conclusion for the Patriots, who have won three of the past five Super Bowls, and allowed the fewest points in the season-ending game (tied with Dallas in 1972 against Miami).
