Monday Night Football Scores

Monday Night Football Scores, The New England Patriots ultimately excelled in every phase in putting a 34-3 hurt on the injury-riddled Kansas City Chiefs Monday night.
Quarterback Tom Brady paced a slow-starting offense by completing 15 of 27 passes for 234 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
“I don’t think it could have gotten much worse than what we did in the first half,” said Brady, referring to his club’s tenuous 10-3 halftime advantage. “But I thought we came out strong in the second half and took control in the third quarter.”
Both of his scores went to Rob Gronkowski, his strapping 6-6, 265-pound tight end.
The first of those, a 52-yard catch and run, represented the longest reception of Gronkowski’s two-year career and gave the Patriots a 7-3 edge with 4:18 left in the opening half. The second was a 19-yard strike 4:33 into a game-breaking 17-point third quarter. It was the fourth time this season Gronkowski scored twice in a game.
Gronkowski now has 20 touchdowns in 26 career games, making him the fastest to reach that mark among tight ends in NFL history. Mike Ditka had been the leader, needing 31 games to net his first 20 scores.
“Whatever, man,” Gronkowski said. “When I get the ball, I just don’t want to go down. I try to do something with it, just like a running back does.”
Before kickoff, Kansas City lost starting quarterback Matt Cassel for the rest of the season when it was forced to place him on injured reserve with what coach Todd Haley has described only as a “significant” hand injury.
