On Sunday, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady connected with Buccaneers’ close end Rob Gronkowski for six points. It was the 92nd time they were at both ends of the touchdown pass, both in the regular season and after the season.
According to the NFL, this connects Brady and Gronk for second on the list of all time, with 49-year-old quarterback Steve Young and 49-year-old successor Jerry Rice. (Yes, Rice and Young connected for a touchdown more times than Rice and Joe Montana.)
Brady and Gronk still have a lot of work to do to catch the duo number 1. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Colts winner Marvin Harrison were at both ends of the touchdown a huge 114 times.
The best news for Bucs is that Gronk is finally starting to look like Gronk again. Although coach Bruce Arians said in August that Gronkowski was moving as he had five years ago, Gronkow did not. But he has already reached the point where he can do some of the things he has done and generate great results for his team.
