Rob Gronkowski caught six passes on Sunday, two of which went for scores. But the one everyone’s talking about after the game came in the first quarter near midfield.
Tom Brady delivered a pass that Gronkowski dove and caught near the 50-yard line. Since he was untouched, the second-year tight end got back up to his feet and started running, at which point two Redskins defenders latched onto him.
But Gronk did what Gronk does best.
He kept trucking along, dragging the two Redskins players toward the sideline before eventually breaking free for a 49-yard gain. He recorded his 14th touchdown reception of the season on the next play, which set a new NFL single-season record for touchdown grabs by a tight end.
