Gronk also posted his seventh touchdown of the year with a 47-yard catch and run that saw him fry a host of 'Fins defenders along the way.
"It's amazing man, because you see a lot of guys that really don't want to tackle that guy," Patriots wideout Brandon LaFell said after the game, per CSN New England. "Everybody will probably say this and say that, they think they can tackle, but when you got a guy that's (6-foot-6), 260 coming at you full speed, a lot of guys don't want to hit him."
"It's pretty unbelievable to watch. I've said it before -- it looks like an eighth grader going up against second graders out there," Edelman said. "When guys are trying to bring him down, he never goes down with one guy. He's just a beast."
Reliving the long score, Gronkowski joked with reporters: "I ran a great route," adding: "It was a little play-action. We were running the ball great; that's what helps the passing game out, when you run the ball, too. It was just a good throw, a good play overall, and we executed on offense as a whole. Made a nice play and got the touchdown."
