WATCH: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski makes one of the best catches of the year versus Bills

New, comment

Spectacular play by New England's tight end.

Despite the final score of 36-17, the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills played a close game for the first three quarters - a back-and-forth campaign that saw the home team ultimately come out on top but not without a fight from the visitors. How tight the contest was was perfectly examplified by a second quarter touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski.

It was close but ultimately enough - and it was one of the most spectacular receptions of the season:

The touchdown, which tied the contest at 10 midway through the second period, shows just how good the chemistry between Brady and Gronkowski is - and how much the quarterback trusts his tight end to make a play when given the chance. Even though Gronkowski was covered tightly, Brady threw the back-shoulder pass and the NFL's premier tight end made a one-handed catch to haul it in while keeping both feet in bounds.

A great catch by one of the league's great players.
