Andy Hart joins Gary Tanguay on Sports Tonight to discuss the status of key Patriots, and what it will mean when the Patriots are able to get Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski on the field at the same time.

The Patriots are 5-2, but six of their seven games have been within seven points. 

"You are what you are right now," says Hart.

The Patriots got their hulking tight end back last week against the Jets and he put up Gronk-like numbers: 8 catches for 114 yards. 

Gronk looked "phenomenal" last week according to Hart.

Danny Amendola has played in only three games all season, and missed last week after taking a brutal shot against the Saints that landed him a concussion. 

Hart points out that Amendola still has yet to be cleared for Sunday's game, although he has practiced and appears ready to go.

Seven games into the season, the Patriots have still yet to play a game with both Amendola and Gronk on the field at the same time. 

Sunday against the Dolphins could be that time.

"If Amendola plays, I think the Patriots win," says Tanguay. "If he doesn't... it's not easy."

Nothing this season has been easy for the Patriots, but getting Gronk and Amendola on the field for the same game would be a big help.
