Julian Edelman wasn't surprised that the Colts tried to run a strange-looking trick play late in the third quarter of New England's 34-21 victory. He may have been the only one.

"You know, you're not surprised with anything, how they play," Edelman told reporters after the game. "They tried the onside kick. They did that. You know. Colts."

Typical, Edelman suggested snidely.

"I'm glad they did it," he said. "We got the ball back with great field position. We were alert. Our guys went to where we had to go. And, um, shame on them, trying that again."

On a fourth-and-three play at their own 37-yard line, the Colts lined up to punt to the Patriots facing a 27-21 deficit. Then almost the entire Colts punt team shifted in unison to line up near the right sideline.
