Julian Edelman's lateral says all you need to know about the 2013 Patriots

John Grieshop

This was a curious decision by Edelman, but the Patriots, somehow, didn't get totally burned on it.

If you asked me to sum up the Patriots season so far in just one play, this would be my submission.

New Orleans punts on fourth-and-nine at 9:09 in the first quarter. Patriots lead 3-0. Julian Edelman fields it at the 22-yard line, but with a mass of fleur-di-lis descending, he tosses a lateral to Aqib Talib. Of course, at that point, it's basically a fumble. Talib recovers it. New England loses 11 yards on the play.

Your 2013 Patriots in one play.
