Borges: Gronk shouldn't be blocking on extra points

You know it would happen: second-guessing the fact that Rob Gronkowski was even out on the field during the Patriots' 59th point on Sunday.

The Boston Herald's Ron Borges doesn't think Gronk should have been out there.

"On Thursday they're going to play in a game, he's probably not going to play. Somebody else is probably going to play that position, no extra points are going to get blocked," Borges said. "Why are you doing this? I don't get it."

Tom E. Curran disagrees with Borges' way of thinking.

Some Patriots kneel, others stand and link arms during national anthem

FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms. 

On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms. 

Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler. 

Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
