VIDEO: Buccaneers’ Rob Gronkowski scores TD for second straight week in a row

Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers

Here is a headline that we haven’t seen in a while: Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady finds longtime teammate tight end Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown in a second straight week.

The Buccaneers went up 14-10 in the second quarter against the Raiders thanks to the familiar hookup, making Gronk fantasy owners faces light up in excitement.

Adding Antonio Brown to Chris Godwin and Mike Evans makes this Buccaneers offense so explosive on the outside of the field. However, everyone is quick to forget about how good Rob Gronkowski is over the middle of the field.

It’s been pretty apparent that Brady loves to target his tight ends, especially in the red zone.

If the attention is going to be on the outside of the field, Brady has even more room to operate down the middle of the field. Expect to see even more production from Gronk as the Tampa Bay receiving core becomes fully healthy and accustomed to TB12.

Could this be a sign that Gronkowski is back to regular form? Possibly.

Maybe the tight end just needed a few weeks to get back into football shape and make a difference? It’s hard to say for sure, but touchdowns in back to back weeks is definitely a good sign.

TB12 and Gronk have excellent rapport. With Brady, Gronk caught 521 passes for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns over nine seasons.

If Gronkowski returns to his prime form, the entire league is going to be put on notice. Don’t be surprised if we see more Gronk spikes going forward.
