Patriots ride Gronkowski to 9th straight AFC East title

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers still can't figure out how to cover Rob Gronkowski. The AFC East still can't figure out how to catch up with the New England Patriots. And now any AFC team that wants to do it in the playoffs will likely have to do it in Foxborough.

Good luck with all that.

The defending Super Bowl champions remain a tough out regardless of circumstance. The proof came to life in a 27-24 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in which they rallied from an eight-point deficit to score twice in the final 4 minutes to lock up their record ninth straight division title.
