Clean-shaven Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman sat courtside at the Celtics-Hawks game at TD Garden Monday night.

Edelman appeared quite different without his bushy facial hair as he sported a white shirt and black hat, no Patriots apparel visible.

Incognito or not, Edelman is etched in the memories of Patriots fans for his miraculous catch in Super Bowl LI. The Patriots won their fifth Lombardi Trophy with a 34-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons Feb. 5 at Houston.

No Patriots’ mojo Monday night for the Celtics. They were routed by the Atlanta Hawks, 114-98.
