FOXBORO, Mass. — He might not be Rob Gronkowski, but New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett still is an immensely talented athlete.
Bennett proved that again Monday night, outmuscling Baltimore Ravens linebacker Zachary Orr to haul in his first touchdown pass since early October.
Equal credit for the score should to go Bennett and quarterback Tom Brady, who delivered a perfect throw on the play.
The Patriots reached into their bag of tricks earlier in the drive, picking up 28 yards on a flea flicker. Brady found Chris Hogan streaking through the secondary after receiving a lateral from running back LeGarrette Blount.
Brady also hit rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell for a touchdown pass during the first half of the teams’ Monday night showdown.
