WATCH: Brady, Gronk connect on two TDs in Bucs opener originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Defending Super Bowl champions Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are picking up where they left off.

The former New England Patriots stars wasted no time showing off their connection in Thursday night's regular-season opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys. Brady found Gronk for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Bucs an early lead.

In the third quarter, Gronk caught his 100th touchdown pass from Brady to make it 28-19 Bucs.

A familiar sight for Pats fans is becoming a regular occurrence for Bucs fans as well. Gronk caught seven TD passes during the 2020 campaign and added another two in Super Bowl 56.

Brady's first TD pass of the 2021 season went to wideout Chris Godwin. The 44-year-old also tossed a 47-yard TD to another ex-Patriot in Antonio Brown.
