The New England Patriots secured their eighth consecutive season of 12 or more wins after defeating the Buffalo Bills 37-16 at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.
And if you ask tight end Rob Gronkowski, there’s a direct correlation between himself and that run of success.
Gronkowski, who the Patriots drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, has been a part of each one of those 12-plus-win teams. And Sunday’s win, he joked that he’s the reason the team has been dominant for the past eight seasons
Never change, Gronk.
Gronkowski certainly has been a huge factor in the Patriots’ recent run of success that has seen the team win two Super Bowls and play in a third. But there’s a guy who wears No. 12 and a guy in a hoodie who might have had a little something to do with that success as well.
