Rob Gronkowski already eyeing TD record

New, comments

The All-World tight end is looking to set a Patriots record.

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

With his 36 yard touchdown reception against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rob Gronkowski tied fellow Patriots legend Stanley Morgan for most TD catches as a Patriot. Stanley Morgan was before most of our times, but he is one of the greatest receivers the Patriots have ever had, or will ever have. That Gronk tied his record as a tight end is remarkable. One more touchdown reception and he'll be alone in first place, a feat he hopes to accomplish next Sunday against the Bufflalo Bills.

During his postgame interview, he was asked about reaching the milestone. His answer was about as Gronk as it gets:

We know what you mean, Gronk: if you score 69 career touchdowns, you'll be 1st All-Time within the franchise, and that means a lot to you. We read you loud and clear.

Never change, Gronk. Never change.
