Rob Gronkowski becomes fastest tight end in history to catch 40 touchdowns

Gronkowski is scoring touchdowns at a ridiculous rate.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made history on Monday Night Football.

With his touchdown in the third quarter, Gronkowski became the fastest tight end in history to reach 40 career touchdowns, according to the Patriots' official Twitter account. Gronkowski accomplished the feat in 47 games, shattering Antonio Gates' mark of 71 game.

At this pace, Gronkowski could be the all-time touchdown king among tight ends when it's all said and done. Of course, keeping up this ridiculous pace won't be easy.
