    A little commented on moment. End of the first half - Pats had run twice and had 3rd down in their territory. Chiefs called TO with 1:11 left. New England looked set to let clock run. Pats get a first down on the next play and ended up ahead 14-0 at half instead of 7-0. Big swing

    That is the one right after the INT where I thought we lost Jules for the game. Underrated moment that he got up from that unshaken.

    KC - had
    DB he GOT 19 first half carries and TWENTY NINE in all. How much rhythm does he need. Any more and he would have needed intravenous. Any more rhythm and the Pope would have been needed for dispensation. ;)

    Entitled punk. I hope somebody tears him to pieces during one of his scrambles/cross-body throws. Let's see how he enjoys his protected-class status then.

    That hit looks worse that it is because most of it is Edelman seeing it coming and falling backward. If he didn't... well, he might even be out for the Super Bowl. That was definitely an attempted cheap shot.

    You can pause the GIF by clicking on it. His head gets knocked back first and then he falls down.

    It's 110% correct. If that wasn't the case, Edelman wouldn't have been planting his foot into the ground and stopping before the KC player flew into the screen. That's what he's doing. Watch the GIF and you'll see it. If you don't see it then, watch it again. Watch it again after that if you need to. That's the beauty of a GIF.

    He was getting low to take the hit, he didn't fall back to avoid it. Just pause it or find an app that can play it frame by frame.

    What? He planted his foot and began to fall backward. That was my original point. Whether he did it to avoid the hit or soften it doesn't really matter. He fell backward. Therefore, the hit looks worse than it was or could have been. Believe me, had he not done that, he's probably out cold on the field.

    From what I see he's trying to stop and get low. He gets knocked backwards with the forearm to the head is what I see. I think He's trying to go down to the ground but there's no time to react. I don't think he's trying to fall down backwards.

    They're the same thing in this case. He had enough time for his brain to process what was about to happen, plant, and start to fall backwards. It lessened the hit quite a bit. Without that, he's out of the game and likely in concussion protocol.

    I'll just say crouching and falling backwards are not the same thing.

    It must have looked worse than it was because as you say.. if he would have taken that at 100% no way he gets up. And when I saw it live that is what I was thinking.. turnover + Jules out. I was absolutely baffled when he just got up 1-2 breaths later.
