During the long NFL offseason, everyone in the league needs to find his respective fix of competition – and as one might expect, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski took to the national stage to get his.
Gronkowski appeared on CBS' Late Late Show with James Corden where actors Luke Wilson and Liev Schreiber joined him. The three competed in a humorous game called Target Practice, in which they attempted to throw footballs through holes on a rotating wheel, while (supposedly) attempting to avoid hitting Corden himself, who was taped to the wheel.
Considering Gronkowski's profession, one would think he'd have an inherent advantage – but as this video shows, maybe it'd be best for Gronk to stick to the receiving end of football:
So Schrieber's win was aided by a controversial buzzer-beating toss. But it goes down as a win nonetheless, which has to be considered a massive upset against a man who has made four of the previous five NFL Pro Bowls.
Ultimately, the loss will only add more fuel to the fire for Gronkowski, who came agonizingly close to leading the Patriots to their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance before falling to the Broncos in the 2015 AFC championship game. The 2016 team will open its regular season with a Sept. 11 on Sunday Night Football against fellow defending semi-finalists, the Arizona Cardinals.
