Wilfork makes big play when Patriots need it

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Last winter, New England Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork had cleaned out his locker at Gillette Stadium. He reportedly was irate that the Patriots were asking to redo his contract, and it looked like he would be released. But lo and behold, Wilfork and the Patriots came to an agreement on an extension, and on Sunday the nose tackle began the return on that investment with a red zone interception in the final minute off a deflection to preserve a 16-9 New England win over the Oakland Raiders. It was Wilfork’s third career pick, and two have been against the Raiders. “We always try to tell people to stay in front of the quarterback and maybe you can get a tipped ball or bat down a ball or something like that,” Wilfork said. “I saw the quarterback release the ball and I just turned. I had some defenders there with me and the ball bobbled and luckily I just came up with the play.
