In the midst of a seven-catch, 137-yard, two-touchdown performance, Gronkowski reportedly broke his forearm and could be out for 4-6 weeks. The broken bone was the lone bit of misfortune in an otherwise flawless 59-24 rout, but it will also hold the greatest impact.
Gronkowski had finally overcome a lingering hip injury just before the Patriots’ bye week and returned to his role as the focal point of the offense. But this new ailment could sidetrack the offense’s development yet again.
The day marked a historic milestone for Gronkowski, as his two touchdowns gave him 10 total scores on the season. With at least 10 touchdowns in three consecutive seasons — his first three, mind you — Gronk became the first tight end in NFL history to accomplish the feat.
Now, the Patriots will need to regroup and devise...
