Rob Gronkowski catches touchdown, Patriots take early lead over Chiefs

The Patriots got the ball first in Saturday’s AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Chiefs and took it all the way to the endzone.

Tom Brady found tight end Rob Gronkowski for an eight yard touchdown pass to give the Patriots the first points of the game.

In total the Patriots opening drive consisted of 11 passing plays for 80 yards which took 4:37 off the clock.

Gronkowski played all 11 plays of the Patriots opening driven. He is said to be dealing with knee and back injuries which caused him to miss some practice this week.

With the touchdown, Gronkowski now has seven career playoff touchdowns which ties him for first among tight ends with Vernon Davis and Dave Casper.
