Yeah, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman threw a 51-yard pass to Amendola on a trick play for a touchdown. We don’t always cheer trick plays, but this one is pretty damn sweet. The Patriots were stuck at their own 49-yard line and losing 28-21 in the third quarter. That’s when Tom Brady took the ball and threw it to Edelman.
But what many Ravens assumed to be a forward pass turned out to be a lateral, and that’s how Edelman was able to pass the ball on down to Danny Amendola–who was wide open, because who was paying attention to Danny Amendola? Hence, a hellacious touchdown that we don’t resent for being a trick play, or even that it began with a quarterback who’s married to Gisele Bundchen.
Those points also helped the Patriots get to a 35-31 win. That touchdown looks beautiful here, too. Check out a real HD GIF (and give it an extra second to load)…
