WATCH: Julian Edelman drop leads to Tom Brady’s second INT

Much like earlier in the day in New Orleans, there was some controversy late in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and Chiefs.

With New England up 17-14 midway through the fourth quarter, it appeared that Julian Edelman muffed a punt. But upon further review, officials declared that he did not touch the ball.

However questionable that call might have been, the football gods had a way of atoning for it. Two plays later, a Tom Brady pass intended for Edelman tipped off the receiver’s hands and was picked off by Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen.

Within less than a minute, Patrick Mahomes hit Damien Williams on a 23-yard touchdown to give the Chiefs a 21-16 lead.

Talk about things coming full circle. Wow.
