Keep your head up if you’re on the sidelines and New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman is around.
The diminutive slot man packs a pretty good punch, as a poor unsuspecting ballboy found out tonight.
Edelman caught a pass while running toward the sideline. He couldn’t stop, and obliterated the sideline worker in the blue hat below.
Don’t lower the shoulder on him, Julian! Seriously though, that looked like it hurt.
Edelman also caught Arizona Cardinals safety Deone Bucannon with a wicked crackback block.

The Patriots are leading the Cardinals, 7-0 in the first quarter. They haven’t missed suspended quarterback Tom Brady thus far, as his replacement Jimmy Garoppolo has already thrown a 37-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan.
