FOXBORO -- In Bill Belichick's film breakdown of the week for, he circled Rob Gronkowski high-stepping into the end zone on one of his touchdowns Sunday against the Jets. The coach appeared to like it.

Gronkowski was asked about it when he took to the podium Wednesday, and he was surprised Belichick was a fan.

"Oh, he liked that? It didn’t seem like he liked it," he said. "He says I've got twinkle toes, so I’ll take twinkle toes. I like when I have twinkle toes – that means I’m feeling good. I’m feeling it."

Gronkowski added: "I took it as a compliment."

The tight end had his best game of the season, finishing with six catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns.

He was also asked about playing in primetime, as the Patriots will host the Falcons on Sunday Night Football.

"Prime time games are nice," Gronkowski said. "I mean, they're definitely different from the one o'clock games. You’re under the lights. You get all day to hang out and chill. I feel like that atmosphere of excitement for once the game starts is up there. It’s great. The fans, I feel like, are just always way more into the game when its night time.

"I don’t know why. Maybe they are partying hard all day."

Gronkowski appeared to be very loose, which could mean big things Sunday night.
