Rob Gronkowski delivers when it matters most

Rob Gronkowski delivers when it matters most

FOXBORO – Travis Kelce might have won the statistical battle of the star tight ends early on, but Rob Gronkowski left little doubt in the fourth quarter why many consider him the cream of the crop.Limited to one catch for 16 yards in the first three quarters, Gronkowski made the most of his two fourth-quarter catches. One was for 42 yards, the other was a backbreaking 39-yarder to set up Stephen Gostkowskis game-winning field goal on the final play of the Patriots 43-40 victory against the previously undefeated Chiefs last night at Gillette Stadium.Gronkowski was unavailable following...

Patriots notebook: Chung and Co. in tight spot

FOXBORO — The last NFL tight end to eclipse 1,200 yards in a season was Jimmy Graham in 2013.Don’t look now, but Kansas City’s Travis Kelce is on pace to gain more than 1,300 yards this year. While Tyreek Hill is a one-of-a-kind speed demon, Kelce is probably the Chiefs’ most polished pass-catcher.Limiting Kelce is not a simple task, according to Patriots coach Bill Belichick. He moves all over the formation.“Kelce at tight end is one thing,” Belichick said. “Kelce split out is another thing. Kelce in the red area is one thing. Kelce on third down’s another thing. I mean,...

NFL notebook: Tight ends, tighter choice

NFL notebook: Tight ends, tighter choice

Mercedes or BMW? Cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir? Filet mignon or ribeye? When it comes to choosing the best, it’s usually a matter of individual taste.The same can be said with tight ends, although it gets a bit more involved than simply coming down to personal preference. Case in point, in recent weeks, there’s been an ongoing debate about Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce.Super Bowl-winning defensive lineman Booger McFarland seemed to get the ball rolling earlier this month, saying Kelce was the best tight end in football during ESPN’s Monday Night broadcast of Chiefs-Broncos.

Rob Ninkovich: Chiefs TE Travis Kelce “just a bigger receiver” that “doesn’t want to block”

Rob Ninkovich: Chiefs TE Travis Kelce “just a bigger receiver” that “doesn’t want to block”

The two-time world champion doesn’t see Kelce as a tight end. The upcoming game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs offers plenty of intrigue. One of the most talked about battles is one that does not even take place simultaneously: the one between tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. The two Pro Bowlers are arguably the two best players in the NFL at their position – but there is little doubt about who is number one, at least when you ask Rob Ninkovich. The former Patriots defender, who retired last offseason, recently joined XTRA 1360 in San Diego to...
