Tom Brady is not only the greatest quarterback to ever play the game, he’s also one of the most competitive athletes to ever play a professional sport.
At 42 years of age, Brady is still going as strong as ever. He had 300 yards passing and two TDs Sunday against the New York Jets before being pulled from the blowout.
Brady showed off his competitive spirit when in the fourth quarter of a 30-7 game, the QB served as a blocker on Philip Dorsett’s end around and dove at Jets safety Jamal Adams.
This is maybe not the best thing for a 42-year-old QB to do, but he’s all about the team:
