Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on an historic pace after big night in win over Chiefs.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots
Tom Brady’s favorite target hauled in four catches for 96 yards and two memorable trips to the end zone — a 52-yard sprint down the sideline that put the 6'6", 265-pounder’s speed on display and a 19-yard dive over the goal line that flipped Gronkowski onto his neck before the second-year star staggered to his feet and spiked the ball. Gronkowski now has 20 TDs in his first 26 games, breaking Bears Hall of Famer Mike Ditka’s record (31) for fewest games by a tight end to score 20 TDs.
Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh met with Commissioner Roger Goodell but shouldn’t change playing style.

Suh’s meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell during the Lions’ bye week says more about the state of the league’s inconsistent officiating, ruling and fining systems than it does about the perceived reckless play of the second-year All-Pro defensive tackle.
The Broncos' Champ Bailey will make it hard for Stafford to pile up points
Matthew Stafford has battled a sprained right ankle injury that he suffered on the final offensive play of last week’s loss to Atlanta. His status for Sunday’s game at Denver has been iffy all week long, but it looks like he will be a go for the Week 8 contest. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice after being limited the previous two days.
A lot of dominoes had to fall for the life-saving Jerome Harrison for Ronnie Brown trade.
Jerome Harrison now joins of the ranks of "guys who learned they had brain tumors because of football."
The last example of this was the famous Tony Gonzalez hit on then unknown photographer Mickey Pfleger. The hit knocked Pfleger unconscious and because he went to the hospital and had a brain scan, doctors discovered an enormous brain tumor and were able to catch it in time. In other words, the Tony Gonzalez hit saved Pfleger's life.
