It could be argued that no position has changed more in the NFL's history than the tight end. Once primarily a sixth offensive lineman who would catch the occasional pass, tight ends have become key cogs on offense.
What are the best fantasy football team names for New England Patriots fans in 2019? Look no further. Whether you're looking for great, funny, clever, old, new or stupid fantasy football team names to match your favorite team — the New England Patriots — we've got it right here.
As fans, we all have our favorite players, but who do our favorite players love? We recently had the chance to ask Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce who are the greatest at his position.
On Sunday, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announced that he was retiring from the NFL two months shy of his 30th birthday. We will always be left wondering what might have been, but he has already accomplished so much in a relatively short career.
More importantly, Gronk always made the game a little more fun with his play on the field and his personality off of it. Here are 10 reasons why we will miss him.
The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are all set to square off on the NFL's biggest stage in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday in Atlanta. Marquee players such as Tom Brady, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, and Rob Gronkowski (to name a few) will command most of the attention heading into Super Sunday. And justifiably so, as one of these star players will most likely exit Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb.
Love them or hate them, the New England Patriots have established an NFL dynasty that may never be matched in the salary cap era. Defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on the road Sunday earned them a fourth Super Bowl bid in the past five seasons and the team’s ninth with Bill Belichick as head coach. Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady will now go for their sixth Super Bowl ring 17 years to the day after they earned their first, coming against the same team they’ll face a second time down in Atlanta.
The Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots have spent decades defined by their quarterback play. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, two surefire Hall of Famers, have collected Super Bowl rings on the backs of MVP, All-Pro performances that have carried the team along with them.
New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski, 29, is arguably the greatest tight end in NFL history — and easily the most entertaining player the position has ever seen. In addition to being a two-time Super Bowl champion and five-time All-Pro on the field, “Gronk” is an active member of the community.
The Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) will pay a visit to Foxboro to face the New England Patriots (3-2) for a primetime marquee matchup between AFC heavyweights on “Sunday Night Football.” The Patriots last hosted the Chiefs to open the 2017 NFL season on “Thursday Night Football.” New England entered that matchup as the defending Super Bowl champions and as nine-point favorites over the Chiefs.
