FOXBORO, MA – The new NFL season ended just like the last: with a Patriots victory.
Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for three of his four touchdown passes as the defending champions began the season with a 28-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.
Brady was 25 of 32 for 281 yards and those four scores. Gronkowski had five catches for 94 yards to go with the three touchdowns.
Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason called the action on Westwood One.
