Brandon Marshall Gets Patriots Tattoo After Losing Bet To Julian Edelman

Because of a ridiculous bet he made with Julian Edelman last week, Brandon Marshall will now permanently bear the New England Patriots emblem on his arm as a tattoo

Marshall and Edelman had a bet going.

Two days prior to their old teams’ matchup at Gillette Stadium, the two former wideouts made the bet on the “Inside the NFL” set on Friday. Simple: if the Jets win, Edelman gets inked in New York. In case of defeat, Marshall is branded.

Brandon Marshall Gets Patriots Tattoo On His Arm After Losing Bet To Julian Edelman

As you are aware, the Patriots won on Sunday thanks to an unlikely 84-yard punt return, and when it came time for Edelman to cash in this week, Marshall did not disappoint.

Marshall, later on, revealed his tattoo.

The 38-year-old, who represented the Jets in the 2015 Pro Bowl, took the needle to his right forearm while seated in a chair on the “Inside the NFL” stage. Afterwards, on his social media profile, Edelman exulted, stating, “Bets are bets. Additionally, @bmarshall keeps his promises. Thank you, Patriots, for saving me.”

Even better for Julian, the Patriots won’t face the Jets again this year, so it seems Marshall won’t exact any form of revenge on him. The former wide receiver did, however, play for the Dolphins, who are scheduled to play New England on January 1. Jules must be feeling lucky.

The patriots’ last-second punt return touchdown astounds the Jets.

The New York Jets and New England Patriots took turns rolling around in the mud for the whole 59 minutes and 45 seconds of the game clock. The first and only touchdown was scored on a fourth down with the game seemingly headed to overtime. With only five seconds remaining, rookie cornerback Marcus Jones of the Patriots returned a punt for a touchdown, securing a 10-3 victory and, more importantly, mercifully terminating the game for all spectators.

Both team defenders gave it their all, but a special team’s explosion proved to be the deciding factor. The Jets only managed 44 net passing yards for the whole game and gained an average of 2.6 yards per rush. Mac Jones, the quarterback for the Patriots, completed 85% of his passes for an average of 9.1 yards per attempt, but New England only recorded 13 first downs overall and converted just 4-of-15 third downs. Marcus Jones came through for the team when neither of these teams deserved to win.
