Stephen Gostkowski unfortunately lost his grandfather Saturday night.
He still played in Super Bowl LIII and was a major contributor in the Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Gostkowski said he wanted to dedicate his fourth quarter field goal, which put the game away for New England, to his late grandfather.
