Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was carted off the field after remaining down on the field following an incomplete pass with 2:49 remaining in the game. Quarterback Tom Brady and Bill Belichick came over to check on Gronkowski, who was immediately writhing in pain as he landed. Gronkowski is obviously a vital part of the Patriots offense and his potential absence would dramatically alter the complexion of the rest of the season.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak on watching Kobe struggle this season: "Like everybody else, I go back and forth. I talk to Kobe about it and he says its timing and getting my legs under me and conditioning, getting used to playing with different players. And I buy in. Then I watch the games on TV and I read the paper and I remind myself that hes 37 years old and maybe its more than that. So I go back and forth on it."
