New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't have much to say about tight end Rob Gronkowski's cheap shot on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White in the postgame press conference, saying that the refs handled it.

Buffalo cornerback Tre'Davious White intercepted a pass and was on the ground when Gronkowski launched himself into the back of White's head after the play. White was taken to the locker room with a head injury. Gronkowski was flagged for unnecesary roughness but not ejected. The hit sparked a shoving match between Bills safety Micah Hyde and Patriots receiver Danny Amendola. In fact, Bills linebacker Jerry Hughes was given a 15-yard penalty after the down for comments he made toward an official.

The Patriots had no problem running over the Bills to move to 10-2 on the season, but there plenty of heated moments.

Gronkowski may face disciplinary action from the league for the play, according to NBC Sports. White noticeably was tugging on Gronk's jersey during the play, which sent the Patriots tight end into a fit of rage.

"I don't believe in shots like that", Gronkowski said.

"First of all, I definitely want to apologize to No. 27 (White). I'm not in the business of that", Gronkowski said. "It was a lot of frustration", Gronkowski said. "And just a couple times during the game, and they're calling me for the craziest, craziest stuff ever". I mean, like what am I supposed to do? That wasn't cool. Obviously the game was already - it was a pretty big margin at that time. It just happened naturally through emotions, frustration. "I've just got to keep playing and just keep playing hard".

"It was unnecessary. I don't know what they're going to do for it".
