Shutdown Corner - NFL

Rob Gronkowski(notes) doesn't have a background in tumbling, but he tried to pull off a flip to get in the end zone during the Patriots rout of the Chiefs on Monday night.

Oof. He succeeds on getting a touchdown, but that flip would earn poor marks from a gymnastics judging panel. Gronkowski took a second to get up after that play, and for good reason. The awkward way he landed on his neck and back could have been disastrous. Still, he managed to be the Patriots' leading receiver, grabbing four catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns.
