Patriots Vs. Redskins: Santana Moss Scores On Fake End Around

When Rex Grossman took a sack and fumbled in his own end zone, it looked like this Patriots vs. Redskins matchup could get ugly in a hurry. Naturally, the Redskins took a 17-14 lead on a pass from wide receiver Brandon Banks to Santana Moss on a fake end around to open up the second quarter on Sunday afternoon.

This is a video you've got to see:


The problems with the Patriots secondary have been well-documented this season. The Pats are dead last in the NFL in pass defense this season, and were caught completely out of position by this trickeration.

As for Moss, luckily he didn't celebrate in the same manner as Jabar Gaffney, who was completely left hanging (crashing?) by the home crowd at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. Ouch:

VIDEO: Rob Gronkowski Sets NFL's Single-Season Record For Touchdowns By A Tight End

Rob Gronkowski is having a breakout season for the Patriots as a favorite target of Tom Brady. In fact, he's having arguably the best season by a tight end ... ever. Gronkowski broke the record for most touchdown catches in a single season by a tight end with an 11-yard TD catch, No. 14 on the season, in the first quarter vs. the Redskins on Sunday afternoon.

The touchdown produced a classic moment as Gronkowski gave the football his signature "Gronk Spike," but then realized it was the record-setting ball and tried to grab it out of the air. Check out the video:


Gronkowski has been a revelation in New England this season. How unreal is he? Check out the video of the rumbling, bumbling catch that set up the touchdown on this drive. It's even better than the record-setting grab.

VIDEO: Rob Gronkowski Breaks Tackles, Redskins Defense On Long Catch-And-Run

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has broken out as one of the NFL's best tight ends and most exciting offensive players in 2011 as Tom Brady's go-to tight end. Plays like the nutty catch-and-run he had in the first quarter against the Redskins in Week 14 are part of why everyone seems to love the guy many call Gronk.

Gronkowski made a catch while falling down, got back up, broke two tackles, and rumbled all the way to the Redskins' 11. After a replay review, it was confirmed that Gronkowski was neither down by contact nor out of bounds at any point of the run.

Better yet for Gronkowski: he caught a touchdown pass on the next play to score his 14th touchdown of the season, setting a new NFL record for touchdown catches by a tight end in a single season.

VIDEO: Rex Grossman Fumble Gives Patriots Lead Vs. Redskins

Oh, Rex Grossman. Bad Rex showed up early in the Washington Redskins game vs. the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. With the Redskins operating out of their own end zone, Grossman dropped back on third and long and was sacked, fumbled and watched the Patriots recover the ball to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

Here's video of the disaster:


Andre Carter, facing his old team, was the man who got to Grossman on the pass rush and forced the fumble. Vince Wilfork recovered the ball for the touchdown. The Redskins offensive line took a hit this week without Trent Williams, who is suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
