Rob Gronkowski put the team on his back Sunday afternoon … literally.
The star tight end was tremendous in the New England Patriots’ 35-17 win over the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium, hauling in five catches for 82 yards with two touchdowns. While Gronk stuffed the stat sheet, it was his involvement in touchdown celebrations which really stole the show.
Gronkowski starred in the Patriots’ first choreographed TD celebration of the season, as well as a hilarious routine with wide receiver Brandin Cooks. After Cooks hauled in a 5-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady, he hopped on the back of his 6-foot-6, 265-pound teammate, who chauffeured the speedy wideout back to the sideline.
Gronk was close to going into details about the celebration after the game, but in typical Patriots fashion, he managed to stay tight-lipped.
Both Gronkowski and Cooks have had a knack for finding the end zone this season, so we’ll have to wait and see if they keep the creative juices flowing with future touchdown celebrations.
