2019 Daytona 500 highlights: Watch Julian Edelman wave green flag to start race

2019 Daytona 500 highlights: Watch Julian Edelman wave green flag to start race

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman's exciting offseason continued Sunday when he waved the green flag to begin the 2019 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Edelman is the latest NFL player to serve as the honorary starter at the "Great American Race." Check out a video of him waving the green flag in the Instagram post below:

It was just two weeks ago that Edelman and the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The 32-year-old veteran caught 10 passes for 141 yards and was named Super Bowl MVP -- the second Patriots wide receiver ever to win the award.

In the time since that victory, Edelman has gone to Disney World with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, he got his beard shaved on the "Ellen" show and he started NASCAR's most prestigious race in style.

It's safe to say Edelman is enjoying the spoils of victory following the Patriots' sixth Super Bowl title.

NFL Network named this Patriots win as third-best game of 2018 season

NFL Network named this Patriots win as third-best game of 2018 season

NFL Network is counting down its top games of the 2018 season, and unsurprisingly, the New England Patriots are well-represented on the list.

The latest unveilings came Sunday, when NFL Network tweeted it's No. 3 Game of the Year was the Patriots' thrilling 43-40 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6 at Gillette Stadium.

The Patriots and Chiefs gave fans a real treat on NBC's "Sunday Night Football", combining for 956 total yards, 49 first downs, 17 scores (including eight touchdowns) and several lead changes. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw for 340 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Chiefs quarterback and eventual NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes threw for 352 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

It was the first of two meetings between these teams last season. The Patriots also beat the Chiefs on the road in the AFC Championship Game en route to a sixth Super Bowl title. Brady led the Patriots on a go-ahead drive late in the fourth quarter and then the game-winning drive in overtime.

That overtime thriller was NFL Network's No. 1 game of the season.

It's hard to argue with these choices -- Pats-Chiefs is on its way to becoming a fantastic rivalry.

The Patriots and Chiefs will meet again during the 2019 campaign at Gillette Stadium, but the exact date is not set as of this writing.
