WATCH: Patriots player defies laws of physics, blocks Justin Tucker's kick

Shea McClellin's career may not have worked out as planned, but the former first-round pick made one of those most athletic plays you'll ever see in the first quarter of the Monday Night Football matchup between the Ravens and Patriots.

With the Pats leading 2-0 and the Ravens setting up for a gimme field goal (they're all gimmes when Justin Tucker is your kicker), McClellin took matters into his own hands. Channeling equal parts Troy Polamalu and Kam Chancellor, McClellin did this:

Tucker entered the game a perfect 28 of 28 on the season (and 20 of 20 on PATs) with a long of 57 yards. Of course, analysts Jon Gruden and Sean McDonough both made the point that Tucker never misses ... right before he did just that.

Thanks, guys.
