Tampa Bay Buccaneers star tight end Rob Gronkowski scored two touchdowns in the defending champ’s season-opening win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.

Gronk was back up to his old tricks against an overmatched Atlanta Falcons team on Sunday.

In helping Tampa Bay open a 14-0 lead, the future Hall of Famer scored two more first-half touchdowns.

It started with Gronkowski hauling in this 20-year touchdown pass from Tom Brady early in the first quarter.

Talk about sitting down and helping Brady find an open seam down the field. Rob Gronkowski then bullied rookie safety Richie Grant into the end zone for his third score of the game.

With the Bucs up 7-0 later in the first half, Gronkowski then caught a one-yard pass from Brady to put the team up by two scores.

Less than six quarters of action this season, and the four-time Super Bowl champion has already scored four touchdowns. If we go back to February’s Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Gronkowski has tallied six touchdowns in his last 10 quarters of action.

Is that good?
