  • Stephon Gilmore convinced that Bills purposely tried scoring on him, but failed

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been suspended for one game for his late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White during Sunday's game in Buffalo.

Runyan also issued a personal statement directed to Gronkowski, where he made it clear that the competition committee believes his actions were intentional. "It was a lot of frustration and I was just really frustrated at that moment and it just happened naturally through emotions and frustration".

Even with the suspension, Gronkowski shouldn't have much trouble reaching the second tier, as he needs a total of just 15 catches or 151 receiving yards over the New England's final three games to do so.

Gronkowski said his frustration boiled over because of an earlier interference call on him while running a pass route, and the feeling that because of his size, he is often flagged for interference whenever he bumps another player on a pass route or a player deliberately holds on to him.

"I just don't understand why there wasn't a flag", he said. It was a couple of times in the game and they're calling me for the craziest stuff ever. Acting out of frustration, Gronkowski dove onto White. And then they don't call that.

Dungy added, "There's no place in the game for that type of hit".

The hit sent White into the concussion protocol, according to Bills coach Sean McDermott.

"I'm sure the league office is going to have something to say about it", guard Richie Incognito said.

Gronkowski now has three days to decide whether he will issue an appeal of the one-game suspension that will be heard by either Derrick Brooks or James Thrash, who are the officers that were appointed jointly by the National Football League and NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline. "It is not something that we have any control over". Hyde and Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola were both called for unnecessary roughness for a separate altercation, and Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct for his behavior toward officials.
