FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady can do it all.

He can throw the deep ball or thread the needle in between multiple defenders — and he can even block a little bit.

Up 14-3 in the second quarter against the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium, the New England Patriots elected to run a reverse to Brandin Cooks, and the 40-year-old quarterback was there to lay a block (kind of) on former first-round pick Darron Lee to spring his wide receiver for a 12-yard gain.

Now that’s an MVP-caliber block. Personally, we think Brady should get credited with a pancake block, since the defender technically went to the ground.

The Patriots scored on the very next play, as Brady hit Dion Lewis for a 5-yard touchdown pass to give New England a 21-3 halftime lead.

While his throwing ability might win him the 2017 NFL MVP, Brady’s willingness to try to throw his weight around at age 40 shouldn’t go unnoticed.
