Rob Gronkowski secured 5-of-10 targets for 78 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Lions.

Patriots' offensive snaps: Tim Wright's high

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A look at snaps played by New England Patriots offensive skill-position players in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions (including penalties): TIGHT END Rob Gronkowski -- 79 of 81 Tim Wright -- 61 of 81 Michael Hoomanawanui -- 15 of 81 Quick-hit thoughts: Wright's 61 smashed his previous high of 21, which came twice (against Miami and Chicago). Wright was a bigger part of the plan as the Patriots trended to the pass out of their 2-WR/2-TE/1-RB grouping with Gronkowski and Wright as the tight ends.

Pats score the Wright way

Pats score the Wright way

FOXBORO — It’s all well and good to pay extra attention to Rob Gronkowski when the Patriots are in the red zone, maybe even throw an extra defender or two his way. He’s earned that respect.But it isn’t too smart to leave fellow tight end Tim Wright all by his lonesome. He can catch touchdown passes, too, and the Detroit Lions learned that the hard way in yesterday’s 34-9 Patriots rout at Gillette Stadium.

Brandon LaFell with another strong performance, feels ‘good’ after leaving with injury

FOXBORO — Although he may not get the recognition like Rob Gronkowski or Tom Brady, there is no denying a major reason for the Patriots’ seven-game win streak has been the play of wide receiver Brandon LaFell. Over the last six games, LaFell has caught 37 passes on 53 targets for 489 yards and four […]

Tim Wright was ready for his ‘opportunity’ when Lions doubled Rob Gronkowski

FOXBORO — Pick your poison. The Lions chose to double Rob Gronkowski often on Sunday in the red zone. That part worked but the Patriots killed the Lions with a heavy dose of Tim Wright, who caught a pair of touchdowns, including one where Tom Brady had no choice to but to throw it to […]

Lions fantasy football matchup of Week 12

Get ready for Week 12 of the season with a fantasy football-focused look at the Detroit Lions' game against the New England Patriots. MATCHUP OF THE WEEK:  TE Eric Ebron vs. Patriots I was watching Thursday night's North Carolina game on ESPN and thought, I wonder if Ebron is going to go off this weekend to counter Rob Gronkowski. Then, on Friday, I read Jeremy's always-awesome exploiting their weaknesses analysis and learned that the Detroit Lions' best chance at improving their offense this weekend might be by using their tight ends more often. Gronkowski is going to see a lot of...

Patriots player to watch against Lions: Jonas Gray

This week, the opposing player to watch against the Detroit Lions is New England Patriots running back Jonas Gray. I had a great article planned this week to highlight New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, complete with a detailed comparison of Gronk and the Detroit Lions' Week 2 matchup with Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen. Unfortunately, I got scooped by fellow POD writer Christopher Tomke, so just go read his excellent article instead. It is basically what I was going to write, but just more eloquent and interesting. I'll consider this penance for being lazy and...

The Lions Try to Describe Rob Gronkowski; So We Make Everyone Else Describe Him, Too

The Lions are tasked with stopping Rob Gronkowski. Here's what they think they're up against. The Lions know they have their hands full with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. "He's Gronk," said Lions slot receiver Jeremy Ross, to Detroit News. "The name fits him. He's just this guy who's this meathead dude who goes in and catches the ball and just makes plays. "He's like, 'I'm Gronk. I'm going to get in there, I'm going to throw people off me, I'm going to score and do whatever I can to make plays. And that's what he does." Personally, I think that's a pretty good description of Gronk,...

Rob Gronkowski Fined for Sergio Brown Block

The NFL recently levied a fine against Rob Gronkowski for his block on Sergio Brown. Usually when I say to myself, "it was worth every penny" after I blow a wad of money on something stupid, it's only a few hundred dollars and all I have to show for it is a funny hat or a cell phone video of one of my friends cleaning up a pretty horrible mess. But when you're Rob Gronkowski, you can rest easy knowing that the money you're about to throw away is well spent on a play that is likely to go down in history. Gronk was recently fined $8,268 for his block on Sergio Brown, which sent the former...

That wasn’t his only penalty coming from the play. Gronkowski was fined $8,268 by the NFL on Friday for unnecessary roughness after the whistle. “He was just yappin’ at […]

Lions must be physical with Rob Gronkowski

In order for the Detroit Lions to stand any chance against Rob Gronkowski on Sunday, they may have to alter their scheme slightly and get physical with him at the line of scrimmage. This isn't breaking news by any means, but Rob Gronkowski is pretty good at this football thing. Through 10 games this season, "Gronk" is in the top three of all tight ends in receptions (53), total yards (734) and touchdowns (9). He poses a serious threat to the Detroit Lions and their No. 1-ranked defense on Sunday. In order for the Lions to stand any chance with him, they may have to alter their scheme...

Patriots' supporting cast now stars

FOXBORO — One of the most often stated complaints regarding the Patriots offense is that Tom Brady doesn’t have enough firepower. He has no weapons beyond Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman.Stop Gronk or Edelman, and you can pretty much shut down Brady and call it a ballgame.Funny how that sentence looks and sounds now, especially since someone different seems to be grabbing the headlines every week.
