For the first time in eight seasons, it happened. Rob Gronkowski finished the 2017 campaign with a very nice 69 catches for 1,084 yards and 8 scores.

Gronk wasn't targeted against the Jets today, which helped preserve his magical stat line for the year. It's hard to imagine him being too happy about his performance, but remaining at 69 catches was definitely a nice consolation. He'll have the opportunity to add more catches and yards to his stat line when the Pats play in the divisional playoffs in two weeks.
