Julian Edelman reflects, a bit, on breakthrough year

FOXBOROUGH — Julian Edelman has hardly been an advocate of personal statistics and achievements. No matter how big a game the speedy receiver has, he stays true to the Patriot Way, always putting the team’s best interests ahead of his own.

On Sunday, Edelman caught nine passes for 65 yards in the Patriots’ 34-20 win against the Buffalo Bills, becoming the 10th Patriot to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in a season and just the third, joining Troy Brown and Wes Welker, to record a 100-catch season.
