I watched Michael Strahan’s entertaining profile about the Minnesota front four before Sunday’s game and couldn’t help but think that most of America had no clue who Ray Edwards was.
We do now.
No longer just the fourth guy, Edwards put together an insane performance against Dallas before hurting his knee. He recorded 5 tackles, all for losses, including three sacks and a forced fumble.
Edwards returned to the game briefly after getting hurt in the third quarter, then was out for good. Coach Brad Childress said he expects Edwards to be fine for the NFC Championship and was taking extra precautions.
“I think he will be OK,” Childress said. “No reason for him to come back in at that point.”
To the victor go the spoils.
