BOSTON (CBS) – “Play until you hear the whistle” is what coaches preach to their players.

On Sunday night, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did just that . . . and then some.

On Jonas Gray’s fourth touchdown of the evening, Gronk grabbed hold of Colts safety Sergio Brown and took him for a ride all the way to the sideline and beyond, sending Brown crashing into the camera cart off screen.

Brown and Gronkowski were reportedly jawing all game long, but after the above play we’ll just declare No. 87 the winner. Gronkowski was assessed a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but I’m guessing he probably doesn’t care.

“Yes, he was just yapping at me the whole time. That’s why I took him and threw him out of the club,” Gronkowski told NBCSN following the game. “I was the bouncer, picked him up and tossed him out of the club on that one touchdown. So that was perfect.”

You may remember Brown for his brief stint with the Patriots. He’s also the same player who broke Gronkowski’s arm years ago during an extra point attempt.

As one smart-Alec Wikipedia editor described it, Brown “was murdered” on the play by Gronkowski.

For good measure, Gronkowski later added a touchdown of his own that really put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter.
