Gronk Uncovered on First TD of the 2015 NFL Season (Video)

Gronk uncovered on first TD

When it comes to covering Rob Gronkowski, I don’t have many suggestions for you. One strategy I would not recommend is leaving the New England Patriots tight end wide open, which is exactly what the Pittsburgh Steelers did on Thursday night before getting burned by the Brady-to-Gronk connection for the first touchdown of the 2015 NFL season.

You can see just how open the Steelers left Rob Gronkowski via the GIF below:

The Steelers tried to use actual human defenders to cover Gronk after that, but it┬ádidn’t make much of a difference, as he finished the game with 94 yards and three(!) touchdowns.
