The haters were chattering on Twitter. Certain sports radio hosts were surely jotting down notes to support the assertions that Gronk had lost a step, that Travis Kelce is now the best tight end in the NFL.

And then something inevitable started happening: Gronk started making big plays. First, he started with a nasty stiff-arm on a 42-yard catch-and-run. Then he beat Chiefs safety John Shaw for a big reception in the final moments of the game. Gronk hauled in a 39-yard pass from Tom Brady, and set up the game-winning field goal]]> 5331144 Mon, 15 Oct 2018 6:33:01 EDT Patriots Wire
<![CDATA[Finishes strong]]> Gronkowski caught three passes (four targets) for 97 yards in Sunday's 43-40 victory over the Chiefs.

Gronk was held in check for the majority of the game as the Patriots tried to control the ball on the ground against the Chiefs' high-octane offense. The 29-year-old entered the fourth quarter with just one catch for 16 yards, but he came alive on New England's final two drives with gains of 39 and 42 yards respectively, setting up the eventual game-winning field goal as time expired. Gronkowski didn't appear to suffer a setback to his ankle, but don't be surprised if he carries a questionable tag (as he usually does) heading into Week 7's matchup with the Bears.

So perhaps he thought he’d reintroduce himself to Kansas City Chiefs safety Ron Parker.

In the final minutes of the the New England Patriots’. game against the Chiefs in Week 6, the tight end caught a pass from Tom Brady, and charged upfield where he dropped Parker with a powerful stiff-arm. Gronk picked up 42 on the play on a drive which finished with a 50-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.

“On my list, I would rank Kelce the best tight end in football. I know Gronk [Rob Gronkowski] has been a great tight end for a long time,” Mahomes said Wednesday on a conference call. “But, I mean, I haven’t gotten to play with Gronk. I’ve gotten to play with Kelce, and I’ve never seen anyone be able to do the things that he’s done.”

To this point, Kelce has certainly been more productive than Gronk. Kelce has 28 receptions (3rd most among tight ends) for 407 yards (2nd most) and three touchdowns (2nd most). Gronk, meanwhile, has 23 reception (5th most) for 308 yards (5th most) and one touchdown (tied for 8th most)]]> 5326814 Wed, 10 Oct 2018 15:57:01 EDT Patriots Wire
<![CDATA[Rob Gronkowski praises Travis Kelce’s ‘great talent’]]> Rob Gronkowski knows another tight end will pose a great challenge for the New England Patriots’ defense this Sunday when they face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Gronkowski had this to say about Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce during an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio on Monday.

“He is a great talent, and he can get some good separation and run some good routes,” he said. “He’s definitely a player to look at; just the way he runs and gets open is awesome. So it’s going to be a good challenge when we play him this Sunday.]]> 5325811 Tue, 09 Oct 2018 11:57:02 EDT Patriots Wire

The only thing that looked sharp was the Patriots’ offense. And that was just in the first half. The same thing can’t be said for their performance in the final 30 minutes. A ball goes through the hands of Chris Hogan and Rob Gronkowski on consecutive drives leading to two turnovers for New England.

The run game looked to continue its success from last week, but Sony Michel couldn’t find many running lanes in the second half aside from the late touchdown run the rookie had. It’s worth noting that Michel does look more explosive each game he has played in the year, and that narrative continued against Indianapolis.]]> 5321421 Fri, 05 Oct 2018 0:09:01 EDT Patriots Wire
