Edelman does a 180 on punt returns for Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Just to give you an idea of how far Patriots rookie Julian Edelman has come …

In training camp, the crowd laughed at Edelman because he couldn’t catch punts. With five and a half minutes to go in the first half of Sunday’s AFC wild-card playoff game against the Ravens, he returned a punt 28 yards, breaking tackles along the way. The Gillette Stadium crowd gave him the biggest cheer of the game so far.
