The New England Patriots offense has been struggling all day, but they received a spark from their defense. LB Dont’a Hightower forced his second safety in as many weeks, which gave the Patriots possession of the ball on the 32-yard line on their next drive.
QB Tom Brady connected with TE Rob Gronkowski to get into the red zone and then following it up with an amazing grab and score to take a 19-14 lead.
6.9 on the Richter scale. https://t.co/pek6nj9r5T— Jared Carrabis (@Jared_Carrabis) October 16, 2016
Gronk is back! This is his first touchdown and spike of 2016 and it helped the Patriots take back the lead from the plucky Bengals. Brady throws the ball where only Gronkowski can grab it and their connection comes through.
The Patriots defense followed it up a 3-and-out. Maybe the Patriots can put this game away.
