THE FACTS

-Jimmy Graham leads the NFL in receiving yards with 593, more than any wide receiver. The second highest tight end is Antonio Gates with 438 (seventh overall).

-Good thing Rob Gronkowski's back. The tight end with the most receiving yards for the Patriots is Michael Hoomanawanui with 38 (four catches).

KEY MATCHUP: The Saints have done a quality job neutralizing receivers. Alshon Jeffery managed 218 yards on Sunday, but is the only man with over 100 this season against New Orleans.

Tight ends haven't fared well against the Saints so far. Only Martellus Bennett (56) has over 50 receiving yards on Rob Ryan's revamped army. The Gronk's comeback may struggle to get out of the starting blocks.
