Less than three minutes of game time after Julio Jones made a ridiculous catch, Julian Edelman decided he wanted to one-up him.
Forget Julio Jones! Did Edelman one-up David Tyree!?
Shades of David Tyree….. OMG!!!! #SB51

That ball wasn't deflated. It was inflated. With helium. And it just hovered there.

That’s an incredible play by Edelman, and one that will certainly go down in Super Bowl lore.
