PHILADELPHIA -- Struggling in the red zone against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the New England Patriots turned to some razzle-dazzle to score their first touchdown early in the third quarter of the game. The results struck the Eagles with the suddenness of a "Golden Flash."

As the defense pursued Edelman, receiver Phillip Dorsett was wide open on a left-to-right post route in the middle end zone, and Edelman -- who played quarterback for the Kent State Golden Flashes but switched to receiver when the Patriots selected him in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft -- found Dorsett with an accurate strike.
Including the playoffs, Edelman is now 5-of-6 for 141 yards and 2 TDs as a passer.
