Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 3 vs JAX (11 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)

Week 3 was Edelman's first game without double digit receptions, perhaps an indicator of the fact that the game was largely over midway through the third quarter. Had the game been tighter, Edelman would have no doubt reeled in 10+ receptions yet again. Still, he operated as normal on short and intermediate routes, making defenders miss and displaying shiftiness all over the field. He did have a drop, but beyond that, Edelman wasn't part of any hugely notable plays.

2015 Week 2 vs BUF (19 / 11 / 97 / 2 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

19 of Tom Brady's 59 attempts went Julian Edelman's way. No surprise, then, that Edelman had double digit receptions and 2 scores. His first score was mostly Brady, as the QB scrambled right and found Edelman while on the move. Edelman's second score was a short throw that turned into a big gain, eluding a tackler and diving into the endzone. Julian did have a drop or two, but his repeated critical catches and conversions more than made up for those drops. In one instance, right after a drop on a would-be first down, Edelman gained 12 yards on an end around the very next play. Edelman will continue to operate as a high volume target in one of the most pass heavy offenses in the NFL.

2015 Week 1 vs PIT (12 / 11 / 97 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)

Though Gronk stole the show with his touchdowns, Edelman had a huge impact on the game, reeling in short catch after short catch, taking big hits, and showing the competitiveness he's shown throughout his NFL tenure, constantly jawing and barking at defenders after schooling them. One of the biggest impacts he made on the game was a pass interference from roughly 40 yards out that set the Patriots up at the 1 yard line, allowing Scott Chandler to score 2 plays later. Whatever injury bothered Edelman in the preseason didn't show up against the Steelers, as he was Brady's favorite target on the night.
