Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels unveiled a artistic design with Rob Gronkowski coming in movement from left to proper to give the look of a wham block and with Julian Edelman coming in movement from proper to left on a faux finish-round. In the meantime, Rex Burkhead delivered a key block to maintain Tom Brady clear. Brady stepped up to see a wide-open Hogan as three defenders gravitated to Josh Gordon in the center of the discipline.

It was Brady’s longest landing go since a 64-yard TD to Brandin Cooks in Week 11 of last season towards the Raiders, in accordance to ESPN Stats & Information.

It was tied for the second-longest TD go Brady has thrown towards the Steelers. His longest was an 81-yarder to Aaron Dobson in Week 9 of 2013, in accordance to ESPN Stats & Information.

On Tom Brady & Chris Hogan’s 63-yard TD, Hogan had 19.2 yards of separation from the nearest defender at the time of catch, the most large open a receiver has been on any go of the last two seasons.#NEvsPIT #GoPats
