The New England Patriots came into their game against the Indianapolis Colts with something to prove. It’s not that people were counting them down and out, but all year long the team has had to hear about how this isn’t a good team, despite their record and despite the No. 2 seed they own.

Julian Edelman personifies the frustrations of the Patriots as he was always a Wes Welker-lite type of player but was upstaged by the signing of Danny Amendola in the offseason. He has responded by being a stud for Tom Brady and showed his talents on a great catch and run through the Colts defense on Saturday night in the Divisional round.

Edelman is a guy the Patriots need in their offense and without both Welker and Amendola, Edelman has been able to prove his worth again and again.
