WATCH: Mike Gesicki Catches Game-Winning Touchdown as Patriots Upset Bills

Former Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki has not been as involved in the Patriots’ offense as many would have expected with his signing in New England this past offseason.That changed Sunday.

Through seven games, the new Patriot has only 20 total targets and the Patriots are a lowly 2-5 on the season, thanks in part to Gesicki’s first touchdown of the season.

Late in Sunday’s game against the Bills, Gesicki made the most of his second target of the game, catching the game winning touchdown for the Patriots with 12 seconds remaining, Gesicki’s first of the season.

In his six-year NFL career, Gesicki has 18 total touchdowns and 2761 yards. The Patriots can hope that this late reception can be a springboard for both Gesicki and the Patriots’ offense that ranks near the bottom of the league. Gesicki is back to “griddying” with his first touchdown of the season, after he went viral in Miami for his dance skills (or lack thereof).
