Belichick is the guy that, to me, he’s on a pedestal by himself,” he said. “What he’s done this year is off the charts — as far as strategy, as far as taking opposing players out of the game with exotic coverages. I don’t know if there’s anybody ever that has been any better than he is. Personally, I’m in awe of the guy.

It’s easy to forget now, but the last time these two teams met (Nov. 7, 2010), Gronkowski was a still-developing rookie involved in a miscue that contributed to a surprising 34-14 blowout loss. Gronkowski was playing as part of the wedge on the kickoff return team when he signaled for a fair catch of a short, high-arcing kickoff early in the first quarter. The only problem was that running back Sammy Morris came up behind him and did the same, the two had a miscommunication, and the ball landed on the ground untouched and the Browns recovered. (Cleveland quickly turned it into a touchdown and the rout was on.)
Through 11 games, after not topping 37 catches and 359 yards during his first four seasons, Edelman has caught 70 passes for 711 yards with four touchdowns. Welker, who is now in Denver, has caught 68 passes for 717 yards. That’s not a bad place to be in, especially considering that he signed a one-year deal worth $715,000 with incentives for catches, all of which he’s earned already.
