Anyone who’s ever seen Rob Gronkowski party or was lucky enough to survive last year’s Gronk Cruise knows that the big fella has some wicked smooth dance moves.
But there’s no better shimmy than the one that takes our favorite player into the end zone, especially when it’s against the New York Jets – at Metlife Stadium no less.
After closing out the first half of Sunday’s game with a touchdown and a traditional Gronk Spike, our boy mixed it up for his second TD of the day with a 33-yard dash that left Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye in his wake.
Rob was so ahead of the Jets D that he even had time to break into a straight-legged jig as he strutted into the end zone.
Then came a ground-crushing Gronk Spike that even had Tom Brady jumping out of the way to safety. TB12 is smart enough not to get in the path of those juggernauts!
“Brady put it on real quick. He delayed, then got it out real quick. Lost my leverage,” rookie safety Adams said after the Jets’ loss about getting Gronked, according to the New York Post.
Gronk ended the day with six receptions for 83 yards and two touchdowns, aiding the Patriots to a 24-17 win. And while there were some nerve-wracking moments for the Pats, they left the Big Apple with Jets fans crying green tears once again.
Next up, New England hosts the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night, and we’re sure that’ll be as uneventful as Super Bowl LI was …
