Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Game-changing catch in SB LIII win

Gronkowski brought in six of seven targets for 87 yards in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday.

For the second straight game, Gronkowski proved he may not be quite as ready for pasture as some suggested throughout this past regular season. He was the Patriots' No. 2 pass catcher behind Julian Edelman, and it was his clutch 29-yard grab down to the two-yard line with 7:36 remaining that tilted a defensive slugfest in New England's favor. Coupled with his strong effort (six catches for 79 yards) in an AFC Championship Game win over the Chiefs, Gronkowski's performance Sunday indicates he still can serve as a downfield threat in addition to his impressive work as a blocker. However, the tight end said he'll take several weeks this offseason before he makes a decision about continuing his football career, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. Gronkowski will turn 30 in May and is coming off his least productive season in terms of fantasy points per game.
