Patriots-Chiefs Video Highlights: Rob Gronkowski's Flipping TD And More

The first quarter of Monday Night Football was probably very entertaining for anyone who is not vehemently opposed to defensive games. The New England Patriots, heavily favored at home, were struggling against the Kansas City Chiefs defense. Kansas City scored first, but the Patriots' decimated secondary was holding their own against inexperienced quarterback Tyler Palko. That was the first quarter. The rest of the game was domination by the Pats, and was only interesting for the highlights.

Oh, there were highlights! Like this one of Ron Gronkowski scoring a fantastic touchdown on which he seemingly came mere inches from severely injuring his neck.

Julian Edelman's performance was also a highlight. Most well-known for playing wide receiver (and for some unfortunate legal troubles), Edelman filled in at defensive back on Monday night and played well. He also returned punts, including this one for a touchdown.

Very briefly during that video, you might have seen a huge block. The man who executed it was backup defensive lineman and special teams ace Kyle Love. This probably shouldn't be legal, but it is legal, so we're going to show it to you and call it awesome.

What started as a close game ended up a complete beatdown. The Patriots won by a final score of 34-3, and based on the Chiefs' second half performance, that score is flattering to the losers.

Chiefs Vs. Patriots: Julian Edelman Returns A Punt For TD

The New England Patriots trailed early to the Kansas City Chiefs 3-0, but since about midway through the second quarter, it's been all Patriots. Tom Brady connected with Rob Gronkowski twice for touchdowns and a field goal was added before halftime. Even with the Patriots secondary decimated with injuries, the Chiefs offense couldn't move the football. Wide receiver and kick returner Julian Edelman had to take some snaps at defensive back for the Patriots and also plays on special teams, both units.

He made his presence felt in the third quarter after a Chiefs punt, returning the kick 66-yards for a touchdown, increasing the Patriots lead to 24-3. On the ensuing kickoff, Edelman shed a block and tackled the kick returner.

Chiefs Vs. Patriots Score Update: Rob Gronkowski Scores Again, Flips Into Endzone

The New England Patriots took a 10-3 lead at halftime that was nearly a 14-3 lead, but Derrick Johnson stripped Danny Woodhead before he got in the endzone. On the first drive of the second half, the Patriots offense went to work. The Chiefs pass rush had been getting to Tom Brady in the first half, so the Patriots hit a screen pass early on the drive, a 25-yard screen pass to BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Green-Ellis also ripped off some runs for 8 and 12-yards. On third down on the Chiefs 19-yard line, Brady went to the Rob Gronkowski well again.

Gronkowski bounced off one tackle and rumbled to the endzone, leaping right before he was hit again. The hit flipped him in the air, landing on his head. He was slow to get to the sideline, so it will be something to watch if he's injured or not.
