FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski has been suspended for the Dolphins game this coming Monday night following a late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White, who is now in the concussion protocol.

Speaking Wednesday at Gillette Stadium, Bill Belichick said he needs to do a better job of keeping his team composed during games.

"That’s important for us," he said. "Yep, that’s important every week. It’s a competitive game. There’s a lot of emotion out there. Yeah, as the coach, I’ve got to do a better job of that."

This will be important this week against the Dolphins, as they have been known to talk a lot during games to try and get a reaction from their opponent.

Against the Patriots two weeks ago, Kenny Stills was yelling at Tom Brady and the Patriots offense from the sideline trying to get into their heads.

New England has done a much better job of cutting down on penalties of late, something it hopes continues down the stretch and into the postseason.
