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

Moments after the final whistle, Sean McDermott and Bill Belichick spoke at midfield and the Patriots coach appeared to apologize for Gronkowski's unsafe hit. "I mean it was a lot of frustration and I was just really frustrated at that moment and it just happened naturally through emotion and frustration and I just want to apologize to Tre'Davious White".

"First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White)". White was out of bounds, the play was dead and yet Gronk bodysurfed him, a move for which he was flagged for unnecessary roughness. "But, just through the frustration process, game of football emotions, just what happened".

The hit occurred when White intercepted a pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Then, late in the game, Rob Gronkowski went ahead and did this after an interception. I don't really believe in type of shots like that. It was a couple times in the game, and they're calling me for the craziest stuff ever.

Gronkowski was not ejected, though, which surprised many Bills players. I wouldn't say (the penalty) put a damper on it, because we just got a good win on the road over a solid team.


Said Buffalo safety Jordan Poyer: "I think anybody else in the league who made that play or who did such an act would be ejected". It is kind of hard for me to give you a definite answer, but based on the way it looked it looked dirty and late.

Gronkowski led Patriots receivers with nine catches for 147 yards.

White, was walked off the field with the help of trainers, and is being evaluated for a head injury.
