Rob Gronkowski stretches across goal line for touchdown (GIF)


The New England Patriots were trailing to the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football but had an opportunity to even the score on the first drive of the second half. They marched down field and were threatening. They were nine yards out when quarterback Tom Brady connected on a short pass with tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Then Gronkowski took on about half of the Panthers defense. As soon as he catches it he has two Panthers hitting him. A third one quickly comes in and hits him as well but he keeps fighting. They’re bringing him down and he is falling backwards but he manages to extend the football over the line for the touchdown.

If there was a “beast mode” for tight ends, this might be a good candidate.
