The rematch of the AFC Championship that got us all talking about balls for the ensuing eternity took place on Sunday, and while a lot of people expected the New England Patriots to beat the brakes off of the Indianapolis Colts, the Colts are holding their own.
In the first half, Tom Brady picked out Julian Edelman with a super pedestrian screen that should’ve been a routine catch. But Edelman bobbled it, and Colts safety Mike Adams grabbed it and strolled into the end zone for a touchdown.

That makes three interceptions in three games against Brady for Adams.
If you’re wondering how Edelman messed up such a simple catch, it probably has something to do with the injury that he picked up scoring a touchdown of his own on the Patriots’ first drive:
Edelman just taped it up, put his glove back on, and got back in there, but it seems to be affecting him more than he’s letting on.
