James White plunged across the goal line to end Super Bowl 51’s overtime thriller (although that final play has been called into question) and at least one member of the New England Patriots was as confused as anyone.

Julian Edelman initially jumped into Tom Brady’s arms, but was quickly told they had to review the play. So Edelman took it upon himself to shut down a Jimmy Garoppolo handshake and waive off media members as he yelled that they had to review the play.

It was only after Bill Belichick himself told Edelman that the play wouldn’t be reviewed that he could actually celebrate.
