The Patriots must love playing the Bills. They pretty much own them. Since 2001, New England is 30-4 against the Bills, so it’s almost a sure thing whenever they play. But there is one player, in particular, who not only loves playing the Bills, but his production says he loves playing in Buffalo. This player is Rob Gronkowski.
The 29-year old always has a big game against his hometown Bills, but he’s especially good when playing in Buffalo. He’s played seven career games there (he was injured when they played there in 2013) and his numbers in those games are staggering. Gronkowski has 44 receptions, 730 receiving yards, and 7 touchdowns. That’s an average of over 6 catches, more than 100 yards, and a touchdown a game.
Gronk is questionable for tonight’s game but is expected to play today, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:
For tonight’s game against the #Bills, the expectation is that #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski plays, source said. He is listed as questionable. Barring a setback with his back, he should be good. The week off likely helped his ankle, too.
I hope he only plays if he is truly healthy, though. If he indeed is, expect a big game out of him. When he’s in Buffalo, it’s almost a guarantee.
