WATCH: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is BACK with a HUGE grab against the Texans

The New England Patriots needed tight end Rob Gronkowski to come back to help the offense. It seems like the Houston Texans forgot that Gronkowski made the flight.

After exchanging early punts, quarterback Tom Brady rolled outside of the pocket before spying Gronkowski wide open on the other side of the field. The Texans had placed one of their 3-4 outside linebackers in coverage of the tight end and, well, what do you expect?

The Patriots went on to score a touchdown on this drive to take a 7-0 lead. Gronkowski is a part of the offense and he's not just a decoy. Happy days.
