throw a perfect block on him [football]

"The question froze Taylor [pass rusher] long enough to allow Wrightman [lineman] to throw a perfect block on him."

Does 'throw a perfect block on him' just mean block him? Did Wrightman actually throw something physical?

Thanks.

    What he threw, in a sense, was his body. He lunged at the other player in a way that blocked the other player from continuing in the direction that he wanted to go. His body blocked the other player.
