The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks faced off on Sunday Night Football in a game that went down to the wire in what was a hotly-contested affair between two teams hoping to make it back to the Super Bowl.

The game was highlighted by two plays, the first being Kam Chancellor stopping Rob Gronkowski scoring on a fade thrown by Tom Brady in very controversial circumstances, and the second was Gronk getting absolutely destroyed by Earl Thomas in the second quarter.

Speaking after the game, the tight end confirmed that it was the hardest hit he's ever taken in his career. It was then revealed that Gronk may have been injured, which caused Thomas to message him on Twitter.

However, the Seahawks safety didn't that opportunity to gloat about nearly slaying the beast, instead deciding to keep it classy and hope that he was back on the field sooner rather than later.

There have been conflicting reports about the full extent of Gronk's injury, with one saying that he suffered a punctured lung from the hit, with others claiming that it was nothing more than a chest injury.

What isn't up for debate is Gronkowski being stopped from boarding a plane to an EA Sports event in New York because of the injury. That doesn't sound good.

The All-Pro tight end saw Thomas' tweet and responded to it in similarly good fashion.

The NFL, what a lovely place.
