Few would argue the fact that Rob Gronkowski is a historically great tight end.

But when Gronk caught his second touchdown of the game during the third quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, he moved into a class by himself.

The touchdown was Gronkowski’s eighth career playoff TD, giving him the most by a tight end in NFL history.

More importantly, Gronkowski’s touchdown gave the Patriots a 21-6 lead.
