For the first time in 679 days, Rob Gronkowski scored a touchdown.

It was also his first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Late in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who was Gronkowski's long-time teammate with the New England Patriots, found Gronkowski down the left sideline for a 12-yard touchdown grab.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

Heading into halftime, Gronkowski had caught four of five targets for 60 yards with the score.

The catch was part of Tampa Bay's 28-point second quarter as the Buccaneers built a 28-10 halftime lead. It was Gronkowski's 80th career touchdown reception, not counting the playoffs.

He last registered a touchdown reception in a Week 14 loss against the Miami Dolphins in the 2018 season. After that season, he retired and spent one season away from football, before joining the Buccaneers this offseason after Brady signed with them as a free agent.
