Braylon Edwards getting the drop on Fins
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
MIAMI -- Where did this No. 17 come from?
Some dude named Braylon Edwards just made a circus catch for the New York Jets.
That can't be the same Braylon Edwards who was infamous for dropping passes and event coordinators in Cleveland, can it?
Sources at Monday night's game at Land Shark Stadium insist that, in fact, is the very same Braylon Edwards, but I'm not so sure.
The Jets' version of Edwards has four receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown. He was a millimeter away from scoring his second touchdown on a scintillating, contorting catch down the left sideline for 34 yards.
Mark Sanchez laid the ball over cornerback Vontae Davis for Edwards, who caught the ball while twisting his torso and then tapped both feet down before sliding to his knees and hitting the pylon.
The initial ruling was a touchdown, but the Dolphins challenged the spot. The ball was placed inside the 1-yard line for Thomas Jones top bang it in.
Edwards has made three nice grabs and has zero drops. He also has a 3-yard touchdown reception and a 17-yard first down.
