A few weeks ago against the Carlina Panthers with the game clock near expiration, referees determined that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski would not have been able to catch the ball thrown his way. Officials decided not to throw a flag because of this, but many argued that Gronkowski has a unique ability to make catches the vast majority can’t.
Case in point? This afternoon against the Houston Texans when Gronkowski hauled in a poorly thrown ball from Tom Brady for a touchdown.
Brady, facing pressure, flung a fire laced pass to Gronk as he was streaking down field but the pigskin seemingly continued to get lower and lower en route to Gronkowski who had to adjust mid-stride. But of course, that was no problem for what many believe to be the top tight end in the NFL, who reached down and snagged the ball before it hit the grass.
Seriously, the guy has a radius from his head to his toes. Impressive.
