Wide receiver Julian Edelman played quarterback in college, and the Patriots are not afraid to have him throw the ball on the occasional trick play.
Needing a score in the third quarter of a in a tight game against the Eagles Sunday, Josh McDaniels dialed up a trick play throwing out to Edelman in the flat, who threw a dime to Phillip Dorsett for six.
Beautiful design by McDaniels, making it look like a screen was set up to the opp side of the long handoff. Instead, TD pass from Edelman to Dorsett. Never understood why backside DB would let the receiver cross his face like that but he does. And just like that, Pats in front. pic.twitter.com/wRWGo82s8d
