Rob Gronkowski won four Super Bowls with the Patriots and Buccaneers – and he’s picking the team that once beat him in another to win it all this year.
Gronk made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Monday, and when Fallon asked him who he thought would win Super Bowl LVII, Gronk picked the Birds because of their team play, and the fact that the Eagles got “a free pass” on Sunday against the 49ers, so they may be fresher:
“Well, first off, the Eagles kind of got, like, a free pass [Sunday], a ‘Get Out of Jail’ card for free. Everything went their way. I was at the game. I mean, I’m not saying they didn’t deserve it. They definitely dominated the number one defense in the league, and they dominated the Giants the week before. I’m sorry, I know we’re in New York.
Kansas City, they did enough, they’re always scrambling, they always get the job done, they definitely do. Patrick Mahomes always rolling around the pocket, Travis [Kelce] is always open. They just get it done, they do. And, I would say Philadelphia has been playing more like a team throughout the whole season. I’m gonna go with the Eagles.”
Will the Gronk Spike come to fruition in Arizona on Feb. 12?
