WATCH: The Patriots take a 21-14 lead against the Jets on a Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski touchdown

From third and long to 33-yard score.

NFL: New England Patriots at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Early on in their week six game against the New York Jets, the New England Patriots were trailing 14-0. However, the team was able to come back and take a 21-14 lead in the third quarter thanks to the second scoring connection of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski:

Facing a 3rd and 11 at the Jets 33-yard line, the Patriots used a two-back set, with Gronkowski aligned on the left side of the formation. After the snap, the big tight end ran a crossing pattern and Brady, after moving up the pocket, delivered a perfect pass in stride. The NFL's best tight end was able to out-run the last line of defense to find the end zone.

A perfectly executed play by a Patriots offense that appears to have found its rhythm in the second quarter – and continues to move the football well.
