FOXBORO, Mass. — It looks as though Rob Gronkowski is A-OK.
The New England Patriots tight end was listed as questionable with back and knee injuries ahead of Saturday’s AFC Divisional Playoff against the Kansas City Chiefs, but you’d never have known that after watching the first drive of the big game. Gronkowski’s first catch of the game was a 32-yarder to put the Patriots near the end zone, and he followed it up with a big touchdown to put his team on top 7-0.
And here’s his Gronk spike in GIF form, if you want to relive it.
The score was Gronkowski’s seventh career playoff touchdown, tying him with Dave Casper and Vernon Davis for most all time among tight ends and with David Givens for the franchise record.
