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.
