Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski reach incredible career milestone
Tom Brady is kicking off another NFL season Thursday night, and his arm looks as good as ever to begin 2021.
Brady started things off early, marching Tampa Bay more than 90 yards on the second drive of the game. He capped that drive with a touchdown, giving him the first touchdown of the league season.
In the third quarter, Brady hooked up with Rob Gronkowski for another score. It was Brady’s fourth of the night and his second to Gronkowski. It also proved to be a milestone moment for the duo.
According to NFL Research, it was the 100th touchdown from Brady to Gronkowski as teammates. That puts them in rarified air as just the second combination to team up for 100 scores.
The only other pair is Hall of Famers Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison:
