Rob Gronkowski lays a brutal cheap shot after a Bills interception

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski looks on from the sideline after an argument with Buffalo Bills players during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 3 2017 in Orchard Park N.Y

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski turned heads with a dirty play in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field.

In the locker room after the game, Gronkowski issued an apology of his own.

Gronkowski, Hyde and Amendola were penalized for unnecessary roughness. In fact, Bills linebacker Jerry Hughes was given a 15-yard penalty after the down for comments he made toward an official. If New England holds on, they would improve to 10-2 on the season.

A reporter asked Gronkowski if the hit was a culmination of feelings from the officiating toward him over the last couple years and the tight end answered, "Most of the past couple seven years (his entire career)".

With White on the ground, Gronkowski threw himself at White, appearing to injure him with a late hit. "I don't really believe in the type of shots like that". "I'm sorry, I apologize", Belichick could be heard saying in a video tweeted by Prescott Rossi of WROC in Rochester.

"I just didn't understand why there wasn't a flag [against White for defensive holding just prior to the interception]", the tight end explained. And they are calling me for the craziest stuff ever. "It was just frustration and that's what happened". I saw on the replay it was just a dirty play, man. That wasn't cool. Obviously the game was already - it was a pretty big margin at that time. And it's insane, like, what I am supposed to do? "It was just frustration, and that's what happened". "I just got no explanation". I mean, it's like, crazy.
