Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman scored the game-winning touchdown.
Whether he’ll remember it or not is another question.
Edelman took a nasty helmet-to-helmet shot from Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor near midfield earlier in the fourth quarter, but stayed in the game. He wobbled significantly then, and took a few extra moments to get up after knee-walking near the goal line following a later catch.
Asked after the game if he was tested for a concussion, Edelman said he wasn’t allowed to talk about injuries.
Of course, players in the concussion protocol aren’t allowed to talk at all, so that either means he’s OK or was never checked.
At one point in his post-game interview, he referred to Seattle as St. Louis, but corrected himself. That’s not necessarily a sign of anything, but it’s not a good look for a league that has boasted about its work to protect players from head injuries.
Earlier this week, the league announced that concussions were down 25 percent from the year before.
We’ll find out later if Edelman is a statistic.
