Gronk Smashes Yet More NFL Records in Destruction of the Dolphins
Posted by: Gronkowski
Yeah, we've heard it all before. Rob Gronkowski breaks another NFL record -- blah, blah, blah.
It seems that our boy can't take to the field lately without somehow making a historical statement.
After Sunday's 35-17 takedown of the Miami Dolphins, it was the record for most multiple touchdown games in Patriots' history that Gronk smashed by driving the ball home to the end zone twice during the game.
The previous record was held by former wide receiver Randy Moss, who shone in New England from 2007 to 2010.
As for the Pats sprinting out of the gate with an early 14-0 lead, Gronk told reporters: "The fast starts are huge, we’ve been able to do that the last three games.
"I think it helps the offense and defense when we do that. It’s critical to come out to a fast start and just got to keep working hard to continue it," he said, according to the Boston Herald.
His second TD also marked the 74th time he’s successfully connected with Tom Brady, passing the Drew Brees-Marcus Colston combination for fifth place in NFL history.
"We were running the ball super good (196 yards) and we did an unbelievable job on offense as a whole. You got to make plays when they open up," Rob explained of their latest success.
Those two touchdowns also earned Brady an extra week to get Gronk his Thanksgiving biscuits, Rob told Deion Sanders in a video call Monday.
As enjoyable as the Pats victory over the Dolphins was, it also sadly landed both fellow TE Martellus Bennett and Nate Ebner on the Injured Reserve. Special-teams tackler Ebner injured his knee Sunday while being tackled on a 14-yard run on a successful fake punt.
