FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski grew up just a few miles from New Era Field where the Bills play their home games and to say he enjoys returning home would be an understatement.

In his previous six games in Buffalo, he's caught 35 passes for 583 yards and seven touchdowns.

"I do like going home and playing where you grew up," Gronkowski said to the Buffalo media Wednesday. "That's like a dream to play in the stadium that you drove by all the time just growing up as a kid. Coming back, it's always a good feeling playing in front of your friends and family growing up." 

Chicken wings are a big hit in Buffalo, but Gronkowski isn't very picky -- even though he's on the Tom Brady diet.

"No, I definitely have to have some of those," Gronkowski said. "I have cheat days, man." 

Added Gronkowski: "Anything in Buffalo for real. Everyone's always like, 'Well, what's the spot?' Tell you the truth, everyone always says Duff's or Anchor Bar, but I've never even been to Duff's in my life. It's crazy. So I actually want to try Duff's wings. Anywhere in Buffalo you can go down there. I usually go to Amherst Ale House, but anywhere in Buffalo you can go to the corner store and they always have good wings. And good blue cheese. The blue cheese is crucial, too." 

The Patriots will seek their 10th win of the year Sunday in Buffalo.
