Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski had already made history by connecting with Tom Brady for an NFL-record 13th postseason touchdown, but he wasn’t done doing damage against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
Gronkowski found the end zone once again late in the second quarter to put the hosting Bucs up 14-3 over the reigning champions.
