Kostek and Gronkowski first met when the radio personality was working as an National Football League cheerleader, with the two first appearing on one another's social media in 2015 and making their debut as a couple on the 2016 Kids' Choice Sports Awards red carpet.
With just under 10 minutes to play, the Patriots took over at their 31-yard line. Two weeks ago in the AFC Championship Game, he went for a half-dozen reception and 79 yards, including a clutch third-down catch in overtime on the clinching drive.
The Patriots had run the same play two snaps earlier, with Gronkowski lining up on the right instead of the left. It was vintage Gronk, out-dueling three defenders - Marcus Peters and John Johnson came over to help - for the ball.
But when the celebrations ultimately come to a close, Gronkowski will sit down and evaluate what's next.
"Mistakes", Littleton said. "We had adjustments, we were moving, and players were scattered all over the field".
Until we hear the words "I will be playing next season" from Gronkowski, everything in that video is up for interpretation.
Uzbekistan ready to host Afghan peace talks
Karzai and other Afghan leaders were confident that the Moscow siting will pave the way for start of an intra-Afghan dialogue. Mr Stanikzai said the Taliban had decided in Moscow to meet Afghan political figures who had "manpower" on the ground.
Gronkowski was nearly understated when he met with the media afterward. "I knew it was coming to me, and I knew I had to make that play". And if he does decide to retire after this game, he will go out as a champion.
We have seen Ronda Rousey make the move from professional sport to wrestling entertainment in recent years, and the Patriots player may well follow suit.
No matter, the party is on Sunday night. "Because that's what it's about, is celebrating with my teammates".
Added Gronkowski: "I'm pretty sure it was two plays before when I wound up in the same spot".
