FOXBORO --Like Tom Brady, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski finishedSundays win with his lowest totals of the season.

Gronkowski finished the game with only one reception for 15yards and zero touchdowns.

Still, Patriots coach Bill Belichick had nothing but goodthings to say about his tight end, especially noting Gronkowski's blocking skills.

Thats one of the great things about Rob, he really likesto block, said Belichick, while comparing him to an offensive lineman. Asmuch as he gets excited about his touchdown catches and his spikes and allthat, he really enjoys blocking. When he makes a good block, he takes a lot ofpride in that.

And hes a good blocker. Hes long, so hes got those longarms, he can tie up those longer outside linebackers and defensive ends. Buthes also a real strong guy. Hes got good power, and hes able to get movingat the point of attack."
