Sometimes we really overanalyze the offense, particularly when the Patriots lose. However, I've been saying all season that there's one major reason why the Patriots seem to be a step slow and unable to deliver in big situations. That reason is very simple: Rob Gronkowski's health. The entire offense completely changes when Gronkowski is playing 100%. This was the first game when Gronk did not look like he was hobbling and running within a ten yard box. The red zone offense is dramatically better when you have arguably the best red zone threat in the NFL at full speed and athleticism, and when Brady knows he has a tremendous mismatch all the time. We've seen a lot of times when Wes Welker puts up a monster game and we still lose, but when's the last time Gronkowski showed up at his best and the game was even close? I cannot recall a single time that's happened.
