As the defense pursued Edelman, receiverPhillip Dorsettwas wide open on a left-to-right post route in the middle end zone, and Edelman – who played quarterback for the Kent State Golden Flashes but switched to receiver when the Patriots selected him in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL dra ft – found Dorsett with an accurate strike.
Including the playoffs, Edelman is now 5-of-6 for 141 yards and 2 TDs as a passer.
