The Patriots have won 4 of the last 5 games despite being with out their 2nd best player in Gronk. IMO Gronk is also the 2nd most unstoppable offensive weapon in the NFL behind Calvin Johnson. Chandler Jones also missed 3 of the 5 games. Spikes, Talib, Dennard, Connolly, Vollmer, Mankins, Chung who are all starters also each missed at least 1 game during that 5 game period. Kudos to the Patriots for their 800 win percentage despite the adversity.
