WATCH: Patriots QB Tom Brady connects with TE Rob Gronkowski for a 36-yard touchdown

The Patriots expand their lead thanks to the duo’s score.

The New England Patriots are battling the Pittsburgh Steelers in a week 7 contest with potentially serious playoff implications. In what is a tight game, the Patriots have been able to expand their lead to seven points thanks to one of the most prolific duos in the NFL: Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.

In a 3rd down situation, Brady found Gronkowski down the seam in single coverage – a matchup New England’s quarterback will take every time. With solid pass protection by the offensive line, Brady had enough time to step into the throw and deliver a perfect pass to his big tight end.

Overall, the reception is Gronkowski’s second touchdown of the season. For Brady, it is his eight touchdown pass of the year.

The score gave the Patriots a 20-13 lead but unfortunately for the Patriots, kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed the ensuing extra point attempt wide right.
