New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman posted a video of themselves on the “Toy Story” ride at Disney World in Florida after the big game.
Edelman won the Super Bowl MVP honor after Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Rams.
“These are not the droids you are looking for… #WaltDisneyWorld,” Edelman, 32, captioned the photo of the two as they held lightsabers.

The wide receiver caught a total of ten passes and gained 141 yards in Sunday’s game, helping the Patriots seal their 13-3 win, according to NESN.
“He’s an elite player, plays hard, found some holes in our defense in the first half and pretty much the third quarter,” Rams nose tackle Ndamukong Suh told NESN of Edelman.
“In my opinion, just thinking back, we eliminated him, even though he got yardages. We just have to not allow points to get on the board and give our offense more opportunities to score,” he added.
Meanwhile, Patriots coach Bill Belichick on Monday credited a sports writer for originally finding Edelman, who wasn’t a receiver coming out of college, but a quarterback.
“It’s kind of interesting,” Belichick told NBC Sports. “I’ve got to give Rick Gosselin credit on that one for getting us started … at one point, he said to me, ‘A kid you might want to take a look at is this quarterback out of Kent State. I don’t think he can play quarterback [in the NFL], but I’ve heard he’s a pretty good player.’”

He added: “So, as it turned out, he came to the Patriots and caught passes, which he hadn’t done before, returned kicks, which he hadn’t done before, and played defense, which he hadn’t done before, in addition to covering kicks and all the other things in special teams.”
New England’s Dynasty
Brady quickly made it clear that winning a record sixth Super Bowl title won’t change his mind about playing at least another year, according to The Associated Press.
“Doesn’t change anything,” Brady said moments after the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 on Sunday. “I can’t wait to spend some time with my family, my kids and my wife. Couldn’t do it without their support. It’s been a great year.”

As long as No. 12 is still going, New England’s dynasty won’t crumble.
The Patriots have long defied odds and continue to rewrite history by sustaining their success for two decades. Brady and coach Bill Belichick are 6-3 in Super Bowls since 2001 and have won 10 straight AFC East titles, accomplishing eight conference titles games in a row. They’ve posted a winning record in 18 consecutive seasons, reaching the playoffs 16 times, winning 16 division titles and nine AFC championships.
“Coach makes it a challenging football environment, the pressure is always on, and for moments like this, you have to rise to the occasion,” Brady said.
