Gronk catch sets up Pats touchdown to tie things at 7

The Patriots have tight end Rob Gronkowski in the lineup for the first time this season and they didn’t wait long to look his way.

Gronkowski caught a pass for 12 yards on the Patriots’ fourth offensive play of the game and he then caught a 30-yard pass from Tom Brady to set the Patriots up on the doorstep of the end zone. Brandon Bolden ran the ball in a couple of plays later and the Patriots and Jets are tied 7-7 nine minutes into the first quarter.

The Jets’ touchdown came on a Geno Smith throw to Jeremy Kerley that capped an impressive opening drive for the rookie. Smith and Kerley hooked up for a pair of third down conversions on the way to the end zone and also hit tight end Jeff Cumberland for a big gain on the first play of the game.

New England moved the ball just as easily, though, and a shootout would not seem to be the Jets’ best route to victory.

    Am I the only one who can’t stop wondering when he has his next serious injury — because I just can’t see him making in through the rest of the season without missing more time or more likely on IR.
