General News (Tue Jan 27): is often a tough matchup for opposing defenses, but Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane said he doesn't think Gronkowski is "that good." "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls," Lane said. Gronkowski could cause a problem for the Seahawks during Super Bowl XLIX, because the Seahawks defense allowed 11 touchdowns to tight ends this season, which was third most in the NFL. Gronkowski led the Patriots in touchdown catches during the regular season. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll thinks his team matches up well against the All-Pro tight end, though, as K.J. Wright and Bruce Irvin are "pretty tall and long" and Kam Chancellor is "about as big a strong safety as you can find.' The Seahawks will be focused on not allowing Gronkowski and Tom Brady to take over the game.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 19 vs BAL (13 / 7 / 108 / 1 rec)

What did the Patriots do when they were in the hole 14-0 after two Ravens drives? Throw, throw, throw at Rob Gronkowski, who responded with a chunk play then a huge gain of 40+ yards to set up the first Patriots touchdown. Gronk did his thing by routinely handling defenders, getting covered oddly at times with just one man, and making sure he caught what he needed to. Gronk's touchdown was a simple 5 yard slant play with 1 on 1 coverage. Apparently NFL teams haven't learned to double up Gronk in the end zone yet, but the Patriots will take it every time.

2014 Week 20 vs IND (8 / 3 / 28 / 1 rec)

Don't worry Gronk fans. Gronk played just fine, but with the running game dominating and Julian Edelman running wild, Gronk simply the first option like he is in many weeks. He did have a drop, but did score his usual touchdown for your weekly dose of Gronkspike. On the play, he beat a safety 1 on 1 on a slant route from 5 yards out. Earlier in the game, Vontae Davis matched up against Gronk on the same type of play and won the battle, so it's no surprise the Patriots tried it again with a different matchup.
