this is the play. there were two minutes and 49 seconds left in the fourth quarter when gronk was hit by denver defensive back darian stewart. stewart seemed to collide with gronk's right knee while they were both in the air. gronk rolled around in pain before he was taken off the field, but again, new reports indicate it was not as bad as it seemed. that would be a relief for tom brady who doesn't want to lose another key player. brady: he's been through a lot. he's a tough guy. so hopefully it's not too serious. we'll see. all of our fingers are crossed. sera: the broncos won 30-24. gronk himself did not talk to reporters after the game, but he did walk onto the team bus himself. coming up in our next half hour, tom brady on whether that hit by stewart was a dirty play. sera congi, wcvb, newscenter 5. randy: the pats are already shorthanded because of four key injuries. receiver julian edelman and danny amendola are both hurt.

the holiday was warm but reality settling in. to a good portion of the country. i want to show you what's been happening out in the middle of the country over course of the holiday weekend. this is oklahoma. you can see those trees there in the background just coated with ice. this is yukon there. they had more of an inch of ice on some of those trees and power lines. a lot of problems and treacherous travel there. ice is is one of the most difficult things to deal with because it can be so devastating. they were dealing with that as part of this system which is pretty broad out in the middle of the country. you can see it lifting up toward iowa in the pink there. snow on the backside. rain out ahead of it. this storm will track to our of the week. once again we'll warm up out ahead of it. we'll see rain from it. however, it is a chilly start out there this morning. that system coming at us later tuesday into wednesday. and we're not done with the warm weather just yet. i do think we have a few more 50-degree days here. you'll see a couple of them coming up on your seven-day
forecast in just a bit. the temperatures are running in the teens right now out into the orange. 23 in worcester. lots of 20's right now up through the north shore. boston even in the upper 20's but notice from plymouth down to the cape, it's in the mid 30's. and hyannis, for example, starting out right around 37 degrees this morning. look what happens to our temperatures today. that's it. we have a lot of cloud cover here through the morning hours with some brighter skies coming in as we head toward the afternoon. we have high pressure anchored to our north right now. the flow around that is giving us this northeastly wind which has drawn in some moisture off the ocean in the form of clouds, yes. but look closely here. these are snow flurries showing up especially in the south shore right now from scituate down toward marshfield back to hanover. a couple of snow flakes flying. they aren't amounting to anything but we are out there. we have a few closer to the canal as well. don't be shocked along the coastline through at least midday there are one or two snow flurries that won't amount to anything but that threat is there. clouds may back all the way into
the worcester area before we see a few more breaks as we get into the afternoon. it's going to help to hold the temperatures down. struggling to around 40 degrees for a high temperature in most areas. just a little bit cooler out through worcester hills. some clearing overnight but overall partly cloudy. 20's in the suburbs. about 34 downtown. tomorrow we're back into the 40's but rain is coming in in the afternoon. coastal low pressure comes at us by tomorrow night with some rain. we'll see another slug of rain coming in as we head toward wednesday afternoon so this is kind of a drawn-out event here. rain gets started after the morning commute on tuesday. so we're dry tomorrow morning. showers initially turn into a steadier, heavier rain with some downpours tuesday night and then lingering showers for wednesday morning with another round of rain coming in in the afternoon. so kind of a wet period here. when it's all said and done, i think we're talking about a widespread half an inch to maybe up to an inch of rain with the highest amounts here down over cape cod. so we're looking at that rain coming in with warmer temperatures. 50's on wednesday. cooling off by friday but look at the first weekend of
sunshine and 50 by sunday. kevin: very nice. we could use that. i like that warmer temperatures. i don't want the snow. cindy: good to put up the christmas lights. kevin: got to put the decorations up. i'm getting my writs and fingers all limber for cyber monday today. not going to do that right now though. expressway northbound all filled in there. we had an earlier breakdown taking out the left lane just moments ago. that has cleared away. all that volume sungarring its way up towards columbia road. about 25 minutes to get from braintree to boston. troubles down on route 3. got a crash taking out the left lane northbound by route 18 in weymouth. along the way in the back-up there's a crash in the breakdown lane by 228 in rockland. big delays out of hanover getting up to both of those scenes. now 93 north slowdowns out of randolph up to the expressway. 24 brake lights from brockton take you about 15 minutes to get from 123 right up to 128 and 93. randy.

nearly $3 billion. emily: new moves from amazon this holiday shopping season. the company has just revealed a new drone prototype as part of its prime air service. amazon says the unmanned devices, which can carry up to five pounds, will deliver packages in under 30 minutes. the drones seen here are not the final design, but the company says it's getting much closer. asian stocks fell today as investors look ahead to the u.s. federal reserve for signs of an interest rate hike. right now, dow futures are down on wall street. the index losing almost 14 points at the close after disappointing black friday sales. randy: many trainers and nutritionists live by the old adage that you can eat "everything in moderation." but there are some foods they never eat, even during the holidays. topping that list of bites on the blacklist-- fruitcake, soda, layered cheese dips, and cheesecake. fitness experts suggest that when you are indulging, you should think about the long-term effects. foods that are naturally fatty
foods that are processed with artificial ingredients. and of course, don't forget to factor in the calories you're drinking. not just the food. everything. emily: those gingerbread martinis, et cetera. randy: everything coming back to haunt you. emily: all right. still ahead, we've all heard of getting something for nothing. but what about nothing for something? randy: the black friday idea that a lot of people bought into. that's ahead in eyepoppers. erika? erika: new at 6:30, lawyers for the boston marathon bomber back in a boston courtroom this week. the steps being taken to get dzhokhar tsarnaev a second trial. president obama in france. his message for the people of paris after the terror attacks. and we continue to follow new developments in gronk's injury last night against denver. the pats tight end set to undergo an m.r.i. later today.

otherwise we're seeing ocean-effect clouds in eastern most massachusetts. breaks in the clouds off to the west. so overall, it's a chilly day. only around 40 today. mid 40's tomorrow but rain moves in in the afternoon. and it is a milder wednesday, but we're going to keep that rain in place. we're back in the lower 50's. randy? randy: cindy, thank you. 6:25. eye-popper time. erika, what do you have this morning? erika: so, black friday was a bit of a bust this year, but cards against humanity fared well. did you ever play that game? randy: no. emily: cindy would know. the so-called "party game for bizarre deal -- give them 5 bucks and get nothing. and it turns out more than 11,000 people actually did. they made more than 71,000 in profit from the deal. to charity and the rest to their employees as bonuses. randy: i'll be darned.

that is pretty standard. the play causing concern happened late in the fourth quarter when denver's darian stewart hit him low on an incomplete pass. it looked ugly. but when asked, pats quarterback tom brady stopped short of calling it a dirty hit. brady: i mean it's really the only way for defenders to hit now. i'll bet you if you asked quite a lot of people, they'd rather when you go low, that's what happens. but i don't think it's dirty. i just think it's the way football is being played now. sera: as we remember, gronk has had season-ending injuries before with a broken forearm in 2012 and a torn a.c.l. in 2013. but again, nothing that serious seems to have happened here. in fact, gronk walked onto the bus after the game without crutches or a limp. the pats' perfect record is, of course, broken with the broncos winning 30-24 last night. live in gillette this morning, emily: also breaking overnight.
