The New England Patriots Rely On Rob Gronkowski

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is probably out for the rest of the season. It’s always tempting to say the 9 and 2 Patriots will remain dominant over the rest of their regular-season games and into the playoffs. But Gronk's effect on Brady’s stats makes a strong case that the Patriots aren’t just using the tight end, they’re relying on him. According to ESPN, Brady's touchdown to interception ratio has been cut nearly in half without the tight end on the field.
