Patriots Vs. Redskins Video Highlights: Rob Gronkowski's Record-Setting Touchdown Catch

New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski official broke the NFL single-season record for touchdown receptions by a tight end Sunday, as Gronkowski caught a 11-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tom Brady in the second quarter of the Pats' Week 14 contest against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. The original record for a tight end (13) was set by San Diego Charger tight end Anotnio Gates in 2004.

Gronkowski's catch helped New England take a 14-3 lead over the Redskins. Gronkowski, who last week broke the single-season, all-purpose touchdown record with a running score, capped a two-play, 60-yard drive that was highlighted by a Gronkowski 49-yard reception that came on the drive's first play.

Here's the video of the record-setting touchdown catch:

Patriots Vs. Redskins Video Highlights: Andre Carter Sack Of Rex Grossman; Vince Wilfork Touchdown

The New England Patriots struck early in their Week 14 NFL contest against the Washington Redskins, and surprisingly it wasn't the Pats' offense that put points on the board. Instead. it was veteran defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who recovered a fumbled by Washington quarterback Rex Grossman in the endzone just 2:43 seconds into the game.

Patriots defensive end Andre Carter forced the fumble by sacking and stripping Grossman, who dropped back to pass on a 3-and-9 from his own four-yard line. Wilfork was in the right place at the right time and jumped on the ball and helped New England take a 7-0 advantage.

Here's a video of the play:

The touchdown was Wilfork's second of the season. A few weeks back, Wilfork returned an interception for a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football.

Patriots Vs. Redskins Week 14 News: FedEx Field In Rough Shape After Army-Navy Game

In less than a half hour, the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins will face each other at FedEx Field in Landover, MD, and it looks as if both teams will not only be battling each other, but sloppy field conditions. According to CSNNE.com's Patriots insider Tom E. Curran, FedEx Field is in bad shape after Saturday's Army-Navy game, which featured the Midshipman beating the Black Knights, 27-21.

On his blog, Curran said this:

"Kicker Stephen Gostkowski's performance will likely be impacted some since the area chewed up is between the hashes."

"The sidelines on the Redskins side of the field is also pretty beat up, especially near the goal line."

"And the end zones still say "ARMY" and "NAVY."

"But Mike Shanahan says the turf isn't that bad in his estimation."

If the field is in rough shape, it may slow down the passing attack of the Patriots, who face the league's ninth-best passing defense of the Redskins. New England's shifty slot receiver Wes Welker also could be slowed down a bit.
