Julian Edelman: Catch was luck (mostly)

Julian Edelman: Catch was luck (mostly)

If New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman could put a percentage on what it took to make that incredible catch in Super Bowl LI, what would it be?

Fresh off of what’s being dubbed as the greatest comeback in football history, possibly in all of sports’ history, Edelman and head coach Bill Belichick visited the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night.

Edelman supposed the ankle catch, as it’s being called by some, was “70 percent luck, 30 percent skill.”

“After it all happened, I was kind of disappointed in my route, I’m not going to lie,” he said. “I should have stuck it a little harder.”
