A day after their team’s unlikely, if not altogether improbable, comeback win in Super Bowl LI, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and receiver Julian Edelman will talk about it on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The pair will be on the NBC late-night talker tonight, just having been added as guests on an episode that already features Tom Selleck and Joe Jonas.
Absent from the guest list, however: Tom Brady, who just became the first player to win five Super Bowls with the same team, and only the second ever to get five rings. The win moves him to the top of the conversation about greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Belichick also made Super Bowl history on Sunday, appearing in his record seventh Big Game as head coach, passing Don Shula. The Patriots stalwart picked up his seventh ring, having won two as an assistant coach with the New York Giants before joining New England.
The bearded Edelman was among the heroes of Super Bowl LI, making a spectacular diving catch in traffic to give the Pats a first down on the touchdown drive that ending up tying the game late in the fourth quarter. He also was the team’s leading receiver during the regular season.
