    EDIT: Then again are they ruling it as a lateral? Still, with the 4 games left, it will be his.

    Congratulations (still 4 games to go).

    Is it too early to extend his contract?

    Yeah, they ruled it a lateral.

    Maybe they'll leave Brady on the field and have him throw another to Gronk.

    He still has the record for TDs scored by a TE, just not for TD receptions.

    yes, that was my first impression too (especially since I have Gronk on my fantasy team and I"m playing against Brady)

    Yes, but plays like that are called passes pretty much every game in the NFL. I don't know why the refs were ticky tacky with that, but I guess it's a TD either way, so it doesn't matter much.

    Not the refs, the statisticians.

    I rather doubt Gates or Vernon Davis had rushing or return touchdowns in their seasons. We can reasonably assume that Gronkowski now already owns the record for the most TD's in a season by a TE in league history -- 12 games into his second season.

    We can do more than that:

    [Note: source says "has," but obviously that's wrong now. ;) ]

    Oh, and remarkably, it's the first rushing TD by a TE since 2006. :eek:
