Patriots-Colts Week 11: Notes and Observations

- The first thing that we all took away from this game is the injury to Rob Gronkowski. The injury definitely hurts as Gronk does a lot more for the offense than just catch passes and spike footballs. He is one of the more dominant blocking tight ends in the NFL today and his presence […]
