The Top 5 New England Patriots Plays of The 2016 - 2017 Season
With the Super Bowl just days away, I wanted to round up the top 5 plays of the Patriots' 2016 - 2017 season.
5. Shea McClellin Blocks Justin Tucker
Shea McClellin gets the snap count perfect in this week 14 win over the Baltimore Ravens. This is one of the most difficult and riskiest plays to pull off on a field goal, because if the defensive player touches an offensive lineman while leaping, it results in a penalty. McClellin easily clears the long snapper and blocks Sam Koch, the holder, resulting in Patriots ball.
4. Blount Bounces Outside For The TD
LeGarrette Blount shows off some nimble moves to bounce out of the backfield. Once he turns the corner he tries one too many jukes and almost stumbles, but manages to make it into the end zone.
3. Cool As A Cucumber
Tom Brady can stay cool no matter what the circumstances are. Here, a botched fake end around with #11 Julian Edelman results in a fumble. Brady picks up the ball, sticks with the original play, watches Malcolm Mitchell coming on a crossing route to the right side of the field.
2. All-Pro Route Running By Julian Edelman
Seriously, this guy still isn’t an All-Pro? Look at this impeccable route running. Two misdirections, one at the beginning to get the corner back to bite, then when #27’s hips turn, Edelman fakes to the left and goes to the right side. Brady throws a perfect ball and Edelman drags his right toe beautifully for the touchdown.
