Tom Brady had his best game of the season on Saturday night, leading the New England Patriots to a 24-17 win over the Buffalo Bill to secure their 11th straight AFC East division title.
Brady looked better than he has in months, completing a season-high 78.8% of his passes for 271 yards and a touchdown, keeping the Patriots offense moving against the stout defense of the Bills. It was Brady's first game with a passer rating above 100 since Week 5, giving Patriots fans a bit of relief after a few stagnant weeks from the New England offense.
But while Brady was brilliant with the ball, his best highlight of the day came on a block he threw for wide receiver N'Keal Harry on a double-reverse.
To start the play, Brady handed the ball off to running back Rex Burkhead, who then tossed the ball to Harry running the other way. As Harry came around the edge, Brady was ahead of him and threw his 42-year-old shoulder into Bills corner Tre'Davious White to send the play forward for a few extra yards.
After the game, Brady joked that his blocking skills are not the strongest part of his game.
"I'm pretty poor at just about everything other than throwing the ball, so I was just trying to get in his way," Brady said. "It was a good, hard run by N'Keal and it was a good play in the game."
On Instagram on Sunday morning, Brady expressed a bit more pride in his block, posting an image of the play with the caption "I'll run through a ************* face.. offense, defense, special teams.. don't matter," a quote that Patriots fullback Elandon Roberts had dropped after the game.
Brady's block was certainly an impressive highlight, but chances are the Patriots would prefer he didn't repeat it in the near future, as New England is once again poised for a deep run through the postseason.
