The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a star-studded line-up. However, they faced back-to-back losses against the Saints and Washington and were finding it tough to regain form. Thankfully for them, the boys regrouped and delivered a stunning performance against the Giants and carried the winning momentum in their latest encounter against the Colts.
Despite desperate attempts from the Colts, they were caught off-guard by some outstanding play by the boys from Tampa Bay. The star of the show was Buccaneers’ tight-end Rob Gronkowski who used his experience to great effect and delivered a fantastic performance.
Rob Gronkowski confident of breaking Tony Gonzalez’s record for most 100-yard games
Rob, along with Tom Brady was totally unstoppable. Superstar quarterback Brady hit Rob as many as seven times for a game-high 123 yards and guided his side to a much-need win by 38-31 over the Colts. Gronkowski, who missed five games and left early in two was back at his vintage best.
Gronkowski is just one game away from equalling Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez’s record for most 100-yard games by a tight end. “Let me tell you, I’m trying to break that record,” Gronk told NFL Network’s Willie McGinest. “I mean, why wouldn’t I try to break that record? I’m coming for it. Tony, I’m coming for it. Basically, you got every record so I’m coming for this one and it’s a pretty cool one, too, for sure. It just shows that I guess you’re a baller and Tony’s a baller,” he said.
The Buccaneers were looking frustrated after a few unexpected defeats. They needed a push and fortunately, that’s exactly what happened against the Colts. With winning momentum on their side, the Buccaneers would look to deliver a memorable performance against the Falcons as well.
