BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Patriots lead the NFL with a league-best 6-0 record after last night's 35-14 win over the Giants.
In addition to team accomplishments, Tom Brady moved into second place on the league's all-time passing yards list, ahead of former rival Peyton Manning.
But Brady's accomplishment's may not have been the biggest story of the night...
As fans across New England pine for the return of recently-retired tight end Rob Gronkowski, team owner Robert Kraft offered up a glimmer of hope.
"We all love Gronk, and he hasn't put his retirement papers in," Kraft said on the NFL Network pregame show. "There is hope for us still with Gronk."
Gronkowski, who made his broadcasting debut for Fox last night, did his part to address a possible return.
"I would have to be feeling it, you know? Feelin' it big time to come back," Gronkowski said. "I mean - it's always gonna be open in my mind."
The Patriots have an extended break before facing off against the Jets on Monday, October 21st in East Rutherford, NJ.
