A Patriots Star is Porn

To be honest, I always pegged Logan Mankins as the current Patriot most likely to try his hand at porn. In the industry, I assumed, he'd be known only as Mutton Chops, and would create and star in a mustache ride franchise that would revolutionize pornography as we know it.

But if I had to pick a second Patriot to someday dabble in the erotic arts, I guess it would have been Rob Gronkowski. At the very least, I figured it was only a matter of time before an amateur video surfaced on the Internet and led to Gronk's partner landing a reality show and her own fragrance line. You know, the American dream.

Anyway, I'm sure you've heard the news by now, but apparently there's a website that's very interested in expediting Gronk's path to Pornville and there's absolutely nothing amateur about their offer.

That's right. The New York Post reports that Sex.com has offered to match Gronk's 2014 base salary 3.75M!! if he'll film a legitimate porn with former lady friend Bibi Jones.

As you might imagine, the GronkPornTitles hashtag is already up and running and there are definitely a few good ones. Early favorites include "The Patriot Lay" (@PatriotsXLVIII), "Show Me Your TDs" (@DeannaMarieRVA) and "Two Girls, One Gronk" (@rengo20).

That last one is contingent on finding another actress and I know this is out of left field but what do you guys think about Betty White?

Maybe Dame Judi Dench?

I don't know. I'm not sure what kind of budget Sex.com is working on and certainly don't know what Dame andor Betty would charge for that sort of thing. But one thing I do know is that Sex.com sees some real porn potential in Rob Gronkowski.

According to the site's press release, Gronk has the attitude to be a hugely popular male adult star.

And you know what? I agree. I say Gronk should give it a whirl. For 3.75M? Why not.

As long as he makes sure that there's plenty of padding on and around that forearm.

Otherwise, some folks around Boston will be pretty steamed.

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Titans end 11-game skid to Colts with 36-22 win

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Marcus Mariota threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Taywan Taylor with 5:29 left , and the Tennessee Titans beat the Indianapolis Colts 36-22 on Monday night to snap an 11-game skid tied for the NFL's longest active losing streak against one team.

Mariota didn't move around much on a cool night after missing a game with a strained left hamstring, but still managed to throw for a season-high 306 yards. He completed each of his three passes on the drive that ended with Taylor's tiebreaking score.

The Titans (3-3) also snapped a two-game skid with the win.

Jacoby Brissett tried to rally the Colts (2-4) to a second straight overtime. But Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard forced Brissett out of bounds shy of the first down marker on fourth-and-inches with 2:19 left. Coach Chuck Pagano lost his challenge.

Derrick Henry then clinched the win for Tennessee with a 72-yard TD run with 47 seconds left. Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner, finished with a career-high 131 yards on 19 carries. DeMarco Murray also scored.

The Titans looked like the NFL's worst scoring defense in the first half instead of Indianapolis, with Brissett directing the Colts to a 13-9 halftime lead. John Simon then intercepted Mariota's first pass of the third quarter and returned it 26 yards for a TD.

But the Titans forced the Colts to go three-and-out on three of their first four drives of the second half, and Avery Williamson stripped tight end Jack Doyle of the ball after a catch.
