The only question with regard to Gronkowski's outlook is his recovery from the concussion he sustained against the Jaguars. Although still in the concussion protocol, he has returned to practicing in a limited fashion, and there's optimism that he'll play in the Super Bowl. Unlike with most injuries, if Gronkowski is cleared to play from the concussion, there are no worries that he'll be limited. The Eagles were decent, but not elite against opposing tight ends, so Gronk should have a big night if he is able to suit up.Cooks needed to step up for the Patriots against the Jaguars and he certainly did, catching six of eight targets for 100 yards. He now has 17 targets in the Patriots' two playoff games, and he should likely see another eight or nine in the Super Bowl against the Eagles. Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills have improved as the season has gone on, but neither is a shutdown cornerback. Given his projected volume, expect Cooks to have a solid game in the Super Bowl and be one of, if not the best option at receiver.

Gronk did have a concussion against the Jaguars, but he should be cleared to play in the Super Bowl, especially with the game not being played for 2 weeks. Cooks had 6 receptions for 100 yards in the AFC Championship Game and the Eagles secondary is not nearly as tough as the Jaguars. Cooks could have a huge Super Bowl.
