The Patriots had five trips inside the red zone last week, running 16 plays inside the Bengals' 20-yard line. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was on the field for 15 of those plays. This is a reflection of how when the space gets tight on the field, the Patriots view the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski as a valuable weapon. Fellow tight end Aaron Hernandez was on the field for 10 of those red-zone plays.
Its looks like Tight End By Committee in New England.
