ATLANTA - Patriots' wide receiver Julian Edelman won the Super Bowl MVP trophy on Sunday in Atlanta after his key plays helped lift New England to a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the NFL's championship game. In a game where both offenses struggled to find the end zone, Edelman made the most of his opportunities, catching 10 of the 12 passes thrown his way for 141 yards while rushing once for eight yards.
