FOXBORO, Mass. — Julian Edelman inked his name in the New England Patriots’ record book Saturday night.
With two catches in the first half of New England’s divisional-round playoff game against the Houston Texans, Edelman became the Patriots’ all-time leader in playoff receptions with 70, breaking the franchise record of 69 held by former teammate Wes Welker.
