On 3rd-and-32 midway through the third quarter against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17, the New England Patriots decided to punt the football. If that wasn't odd enough, it was quarterback Tom Brady who got to boot it away.

With a 16-3 lead over Buffalo, the Patriots decided to play it safe in the rain. The Bills' Jim Leonhard was already playing deep, so he called for the fair catch.

Brady's punt went 32 yards. 

It was the third punt, via @Patriots, of the 14-year veteran's career.
