Pats' Gronkowski fastest tight end to 20 TDs

In case you didn't know, Rob Gronkowski is a pretty good football player.

The second year tight end caught two touchdown passes -- including one for 52 yards -- in the New England Patriots' 34-3 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night.

With the two scores, Gronkowski is the fastest tight end to reach 20 touchdowns in NFL history, as he reached the mark in just 26 games. The previous record was held by Mike Ditka, who reached the 20-mark in 31 games.

Gronkowski totaled four catches for 96 yards on the night. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also hit tight end Aaron Hernandez for four receptions.
