Julian Edelman’s tweet will resonate with all Patriots fans following the brutal first half vs. Buffalo.

Josh Allen threw for 172 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 63 yards. Buffalo totaled 300 yards in the first half and even had 128 rushing yards — Devin Singletary had 58 yards and two scores. Mac Jones threw for 106 yards and an interception, while the rush attack was held to 33 yards.

The Bills finished the half with a 27-3 score and entered the second half of the game all the momentum. Julian Edelman, who bet $100,000 that the Patriots would make the Super Bowl against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, had a tweet that resonated with all Patriots fans.

All Patriots fans are with on this, Julian.

Julian Edelman confident in Patriots’ preparation for playoffs

Julian Edelman is confident in the Patriots chances on Saturday.

Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman has high expectations for the organization’s playoff run.

Once a key playoff performer for the Patriots, Edelman now appears on “Inside the NFL.” Heading into Saturday showdown with the Buffalo Bills, the wideout expects Bill Belichick and the team to be ready.

Edelman knows a thing or two about being ready for the playoffs. He appeared in 19 games in his playoff career with New England, as he caught 118 passes for 1,142 yards and five touchdowns. The 2018 playoff run was particularly kind to him — he caught 26 passes for 388 yards, including a nine-catch, 151 yard performance against the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC Divisional Game.

Now, looking at it from the other side of the camera, he is confident in the Patriots’ preparation.

Buffalo bested New England the last time these two teams met, as the Patriots struggled on both sides of the football. Losing by a 33-21 score, it was a far different result from when the Patriots were able to defeat Buffalo on the road by a 14-10 margin. In Buffalo once again,

New England will look to repeat similar results as the two teams meet for the third time in less than a month.

Julian Edelman had a Belichickian takeaway from Patriots’ blowout win

Julian Edelman, as usual, has the perfect-Patriot takeaway.

The New England Patriots seemed to enjoy themselves in a 50-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17. If there was one moment that showed it more than any other, it was a quick huddle between Bill Belichick, Mac Jones, Kendrick Bourne and Damien Harris on the sideline near the end of the game.

Belichick must have cracked a joke because the four players immediately died laughing. The video made rounds on Twitter, and appeared on former receiver and current NFL analyst Julian Edelman’s timeline. He tweeted the perfect Patriot takeaway: “Winning is fun.”

New England has had a tough few weeks with losses to the Bills and Colts, but they got back on track ahead of the postseason with this win.

Edelman seems to be loving it.

Julian Edelman feels good about Patriots chances in the playoffs

Julian Edelman believes the Patriots can contend.

[mm-video type=playlist id=01eqby79hc76t2s390 player_id=none image=https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/wp-content/plugins/mm-video/images/playlist-icon.png]

After starting the regular season 2-4, the New England Patriots have now put themselves in a position to make the playoffs with a 9-5 record. Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman believes the organization is in a good spot to contend.

Edelman is no stranger to playoff football. In 19 games, Edelman recorded 1,442 yards and five touchdowns.

He believes the Patriots have the pieces to make a potential playoff run. Matthew Judon leads a strong group of linebackers, while J. C. Jackson has been a shutdown corner, recording eight interceptions on the year. On the offensive side of the football, quarterback Mac Jones has stabilized the Patriots under center, and has been buoyed by a strong running game.

In particular, Edelman believes the defense has been a point of strength. He discussed the topic on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast, as transcribed by NESN’s Zack Cox:

“They’re a teeterer, just because their defense is so good and I know how they coach, how they prepare. I hated last game, but it was due to happen, to have doy-doy plays by a rookie. That’s destined to happen, and it’s almost at a point where, like, all right, we still have time to learn from that I believe that they’ll get that fixed, potentially, and if they want to play the game they want to play, how they want to play it, I think they’ll be able to contend.”

Up next, the Patriots will take on the Buffalo Bills.  They will then finish out the final three games of the season, with playoff seeding on the line.

Julian Edelman has hilarious response to a brutal burn on Twitter

Julian Edelman had the perfect response to a tweet In regards to his skill set.

Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman had a productive NFL career. With 6.822 receiving yards and 620 receptions in an 11-year career, he was an integral part of the Patriots offense.

Even as his playing days are behind him, he is still generating buzz, particularly in the Twittersphere. Edelman responded to a tweet from a Chicago beat reporter that compared the wide receiver with Los Angeles Rams star Cooper Kupp. Kupp is having a monster season, recording 122 receptions for 1,625 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Edelman responded to the comparison accordingly, reminding the reporter that he has three Super Bowl rings.

From an important player on the Patriots offense to an important follow for Twitter comedy, Edelman can do it all.

Julian Edelman says what every Patriots fan was thinking about Mac Jones vs. Colts

It was a tough night for the rookie.

Mac Jones looked like a rookie against the Indianapolis Colts.

The New England Patriots signal-caller couldn’t do much of anything from the first drive, as the Colts carried the momentum from the beginning. Jones had two interceptions over the past seven games during the Patriots’ win streak and he had two after the opening minutes of the second quarter.

Jones’ first interception was right before halftime when the Patriots were in the red zone. The Patriots had an opportunity to score, but they left the first half with no points. Jones’ second interception was on the opening drive of the second half, and that’s when Julian Edelman chimed in.

The former Patriots receiver described the scenario with Jones.

Jones hasn’t had a huge meltdown as a rookie, so the performance against the Colts felt like it was due.

Tom Brady tried recruiting Julian Edelman to the Bucs, and the WR had the funniest response

What if Julian Edelman was a part of the mass migration to Tampa?

Tom Brady wanted all his buddies to assemble in Tampa after he signed with the Buccaneers during the 2020 offseason.

Not only did Brady successfully encourage Rob Gronkowski to come out of retirement (before the tight end engineered a trade off the Patriots), but the quarterback also called up receiver Julian Edelman to see if he also wanted out of New England. Edelman told the story on Monday night during ESPN’s “ManningCast” broadcast hosted by Eli and Peyton Manning.

Here’s how Edelman remembered Brady’s offer. Edelman’s response to joining the Buccaneers?

“Absolutely not,” he said with the Buccaneers defeated the Giants.

Julian Edelman tweets about Mac Jones’ stellar start against Browns in Week 10

Mac Jones was on fire in the first half. Julian Edelman took notice.

New England Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones was on fire in the first half against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Julian Edelman took notice.

The retired Patriots receiver and NFL analyst tweeted about Jones’ pinpoint passing against the Cleveland defense. Jones was 9 of 10 for 116 yards and two touchdowns after the Patriots’ first three drives when Edelman tweeted. They also put up 24 points in the first two quarters. It was an excellent open to the game, in which New England quickly built a lead over a Cleveland team that isn’t built to easily overcome a big deficit.

Jones’ big start to the half was all the more impressive and important considering the opponent. It’s worth noting that he got some help from his defense, with safety Kyle Dugger logging an interception, and from his running game, with Rhamondre Stevenson getting 14 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

Here’s a look at the pinpoint pass to Kendrick Bourne that seemed to spur Edelman’s tweet.

 

Jones finished the half 13 of 15 for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

Jones looked extremely impressive for New England. And it’s only his 10th start for the Patriots since they drafted him at 15th overall.

Julian Edelman had a hilarious reaction to Panthers signing Cam Newton

Julian Edelman summed up the Panthers signing Cam Newton on Thursday

Julian Edelman is experiencing Deja Vu.

The Carolina Panthers reunited with quarterback Cam Newton on Thursday, signing him to a $10 million deal. The deal includes $4.5 million in fully guaranteed money plus a $1.5 million roster bonus. It brings Newton back to where he started his NFL career.

With Newton having been a member of the Patriots just a couple of months ago, several former Patriots players had reactions on social media. As a member of the New England Patriots, Edelman caught 21 passes for 315 yards with Newton under center. Newton is going back to Carolina, which made Edelman feel like time is a flat circle.

With the Carolina Panthers ailing at the quarterback position, Newton’s return could be a chance to revitalize his career.

Julian Edelman had epic response to Patriots win over Chargers

Julian Edelman summed up the Patriots win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Retired New England Patriots receiver and Inside the NFL analyst Julian Edelman couldn’t have been more spot on about his former team.

Edelman had a simple two-word tweet to describe the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday by a 27-24 margin. The win gave New England their second victory in a row, and put them at an even 4-4 on the season.

An undrafted free agent in 2009, Edelman knows a little bit about clawing his way back to the top. It comes as no surprise that he was rather excited about New England’s victory over the Chargers. The entire team seemed to play, including slot receiver Jakobi Meyers and punt returner Gunner Olszewski, two youngsters Edelman helped develop.

New England will face the Carolina Panthers next Sunday, November 7. Kickoff time is set for 1:00 PM.
