Broncos defense well aware New England has big weapon in Gronkowski

Of all the matchups the Broncos face Sunday at New England, the most difficult might be defending 6-foot-6, 265-pound tight end Rob Gronkowski.

New England Patriots' complementary football at its best

Bill Belichick often talks about the importance of complementary football, so his choices for the team's plays of the week as part of his breakdown on the team's official website weren't a big surprise. While focusing on the sequence at the end of the second quarter when the New England Patriots turned a 17-7 lead over the Bears into a 38-7 edge in short time, Belichick singled out: 1. Gray's running. With 4:02 remaining, running back Jonas Gray powered right for 17 yards while picking up blocks from tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Michael Hoomanawanui (YY wing), as well as right tackle...

As Broncos know well, Patriots can come back to haunt them

The Patriots will come back to haunt you. You ease up on them, you lose sight of Tom Brady, you don't cover Rob Gronkowski tight, they'll burn you.

Armchair coordinator: Belichick has already shown us the way to stomp Gronk

This is going to be a short teaser. Tomorrow I will bring you an in-depth breakdown of how the Broncos can scheme to limit the impact Rob Gronkowski has on the game. I remember watching this game live and I couldn't believe what was going on when it happened. The Patriots were playing the Falcons in Atlanta early on in 2013. Tony Gonzalez had an absolute beast of a game. With the Falcons in Patriot territory down by a touchdown, Tony had already compiled 12 catches for 149 yards and 2 redzone touchdowns. Roddy White was hobbled but playing hurt so the only other weapon the Patriot defense...

Martellus Bennett needs a more prominent role

It’s understandable if Chicago fans caught a case of Gronk envy Sunday when watching Rob Gronkowski put on a pass-catching clinic during New England’s 51-23 stomping of the Bears. It’s probably unavoidable since Chicago’s roster features a player in Martellus Bennett with similar physical attributes to Gronkowski, which is why Bears coach Marc Trestman needs to find fresher ways to feature the tight end more prominently when he breaks down the tape during the bye week to evaluate the first eight games of the season, while devising a plan of attack for the team’s final eight outings.

T.J. Ward hasn’t reached out to Rob Gronkowski following season-ending hit

FOXBORO — One of the many storylines in Sunday’s Broncos-Patriots game is Rob Gronkowski facing Broncos safety T.J. Ward for the first time since last December when Ward hit Gronkowski low on his right knee when he was with the Browns, tearing his ACL in the process and ending his season. Gronkowski was asked if […]

Gronk ready for reunion with T.J. Ward

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The last time New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski faced Broncos safety T.J. Ward, who was then on the Browns, Ward delivered a crushing hit to Gronkowski’s right knee, tearing Gronkowski’s ACL and ending his 2013 season. Gronkowski made a catch and planted his right foot onto the field when Ward came in low with a hit he would later be criticized for as he slammed his shoulder into Gronkowski’s right knee.

Tom Brady talks up Rob Gronkowski, Bryan Stork, Darrelle Revis

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Leftovers from Tom Brady's news conference on Wednesday: Gronk rounding into form: On the heels of his three-touchdown performance against the Chicago Bears last Sunday, Brady shared his thoughts on if tight end Rob Gronkowski was starting to look more like his 2011 record-setting self. “He’s had a great season. He’s provided a big spark for our offense," Brady said. "Whenever he’s been in there and been really excited and healthy and playing with the energy that he’s always brought to our team, he’s pretty tough to stop.

The best and worst of yesterday’s game

The best and worst of yesterday’s game

Worst sight in a blowout: Watching tight end Rob Gronkowski leave for the locker room, with team physician in tow, after his 46-yard catch to open the third down quarter made it 45-7 made you cringe at first. But it was announced he had dehydration.Best Gronk mismatch nightmare: Safety Ryan Mundy had no chance to cover Gronkowski on a fade pass from Tom Brady from six yards out. Needless to say, Gronk corralled it for a first-quarter touchdown with Mundy flailing away from behind.

Tight end too tough

Tight end too tough

FOXBORO — Dehydration proved to be the only thing capable of slowing Rob Gronkowski down. The Chicago Bears certainly weren’t capable of the task.Gronkowski had his way with the overmatched visitors, catching all nine passes thrown his way by Tom Brady for 149 yards and three touchdowns in yesterday’s 51-23 Patriots victory at Gillette Stadium. Shortly after his third TD catch in the third quarter, the tight end left the game on account of dehydration, though he was quick to say he could have returned if needed.
