(NEW YORK) — The New England Patriots (5-2) will look to bounce back from their overtime loss to the New York Jets last week.
New England will get another AFC division rival in the Miami Dolphins and this will be Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s second game back.
“You always get the jitters the first game back and everything. It’s just football now,” Gronkowski said. “This is my fourth year. I’ve got to just go out there and do what I’ve got to do, listen to the coaches, listen to the players and just practice to the best of my ability so I can be ready for Sunday, and keep a rhythm going every single week.”
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he’ll incorporate Gronkowski into the offense if needed.
“You’ve got to be able to spread it around, there’s no question about that,” Brady said. “It just happens to be if a guy is a particular read on a play and he is open, you let it rip, whoever it is.”
“Gronk, when he is on the field, he is obviously a part of the reads. Whether he is the first read, the second read or the third read,” he continued.
The Dolphins fell to the Bills at home last week and are 3-3.
