‘I caught it’: Watch Julian Edelman mic'd up during his incredible Super Bowl LI catch

Wednesday February 8th, 2017

Patriots receiver Julian Edelman says that his famous catch in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LI was 70 percent luck and 30 percent skill.

While he may have told “The Tonight Show” that he didn't know whether it was a catch, he sounded confident at the time.

You can re-watch his catch and hear Edelman tell the referees “I caught it!” in a new clip from Inside the NFL.

Edelman's mic also provided this incredible moment after James White's Super Bowl-winning touchdown in overtime, where he didn't think the game was over until head coach Bill Belichick embraced him.

He finished the game with five passes caught for 87 yards. Edelman and his catch are on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated issue after the picture was selected from five cover options on Instagram.
