All three fines were for what the league deemed unnecessary roughness.
In the game, Edelman only drew one penalty flag for unnecessary roughness, when he was called for throwing a block on a punt after he had signaled for a fair catch.
Edelman led the Patriots with six catches for 70 yards in the team’s 24-12 victory.

Including this incredible touchdown.
Totally worth it.
