The 2011 New England Patriots defense has already amassed seven team interceptions through four total games this season. What no one could have predicted was that 325-pound defensive tackle Vince Wilfork would have two of those seven interceptions and would be second on the team in that category.
Wilfork picked off his second pass of the season on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. While he didn't gain as much yardage after the catch as the first against San Diego in Week 2, it was just as exciting. Here is the video courtesy of CelticsHooHaa:
With two interceptions, Wilfork is only behind Kyle Arrington (the current league-leader) on the team in that category. For Wilfork, he says he wasn't even trying to get the interception, he was just simply in the right place at the right time.
"No, to be honest with you, I don't know what I did," he said. "I have to go back and watch the play. One thing with a lot of quarterbacks is, when it comes to passing it, they want to go deep then come back to their security, that's their checkdowns or cross or whatever it may be. I was just happy to be in the right place at the right time." (via ESPN Boston)
