For weeks now, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has dealt with young, inexperienced wide receivers dropping passes. Even some of his more sure handed talents, like Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola (when he’s actually been on the field) haven’t lived up to their expectations, so Brady was likely thrilled with the prospect of his sure handed tight end, Rob Gronkowski, returning to action this week, right?

Well, maybe, but at least for a moment, Brady’s frustrations were expressed as Gronkowski, who had beaten his man seemingly lost sight of the ball.

All Gronk had to do was come down with the pigskin and he’d have literally backed into the end zone, but as can be seen in the below GIF, he apparently lost it in the sun. That didn’t sit well with Brady, who immedietly looked up into the sky, obviously frustrated before slamming his hands on his helmet in irritation.

Of course, it’s not all bad for Gronk and Brady as the two have hooked up for five completed passes through the first three quarters.
