Patriots | Loss of Rob Gronkowski could be huge
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:26:36 -0800

The New England Patriots offense has been an entirely different animal with TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) on the field this year. The Pats were 22nd in points per game before Gronkowski returned this year and were seventh entering their Week 14 contest. They were 30th in red zone efficiency without Gronkowski and were 11th entering Sunday, Dec. 8. They were 19th in passing yards per game without him and were 10th entering the game against the Cleveland Browns.

Clearly, the New England offense will miss Gronk for the rest of the year. It'll open up more targets for the rest of the receiving core and Shane Vereen, who had a career day in the passing game after Gronk left the game in Week 14.
