When they say football is a game of inches, they aren’t kidding. Especially after seeing this, those inches likely decided who won Super Bowl LI.
With just over 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter and the Patriots trailing 8 points, Tom Brady threw a 25 yard pass over the middle into triple coverage that went off the hands of a Falcons defensive back, and somehow ended into the hands of Julian Edelman.
A still frame of the clip shows just how close the ball was to being intercepted, possibly changing the narrative of Brady and the greatest and the course of NFL history.
The full play can be seen below:
