Patriots Film Review: Ravens Have No Easy Solution To Cover Gronk

It is impossible to prepare for a fully-healthy Rob Gronkowski. It also is impossible to try to figure out how a team might cover the New England Patriots tight end. Gronkowski truly is one of a kind, and the Ravens weren’t forced to cover him in 2013’s regular-season matchup or in the 2012 playoffs.
