FOXBORO -- For the first time in his NFL career, Rob Gronkowski didn't have a single target in the Patriots' 26-6 win over the Jets, which clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed.

It prevented him from reaching the first tier of his incentive-based contract, as he needed 114 receiving yards, but he can still earn the maximum of $10.75 million by earning first-team All-Pro status. Currently, he's earned $8.75 million this year.

The no targets didn't bother the tight end.

"Yeah, everything is good," he said. "We just won the AFC. We're champions right now. We got the No. 1 seed. We've worked hard all season. That was a big win right there. It was a good overall team win."

He finished the season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns, and in typical Gronkowski fashion he immediately knew how many catches he finished the year with.

"Yeah, 69 I got," he said with a smile.
