Bennett: Burfict apologizes for hit that Gronk didn't like (Shutdown Corner)

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had a career day against the Cincinnati Bengals, posting 162 receiving yards on seven catches with his first touchdown of the season in the Patriots’ 35-17 victory. In the fourth quarter, Gronkowski exchanged words with one of the NFL’s notorious bad boys, Vontaze Burfict, after a 29-yard gain, barking at the linebacker in the middle of the field. Gronkowski took umbrage with a low hit that Burfict delivered to Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett. Burfict responded by approaching Gronkowski and gently head-butting him as the two kept yapping at one another.
