Patriots' Wilfork a hero

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork helped Massachusetts State Police tackle a problem nearly three hours after New England won the AFC championship: getting an accident victim out of her car.

State troopers said they responded to an SUV rollover not far from Gillette Stadium shortly before 1 a.m. Monday and were surprised to see Wilfork checking on the driver. Hours earlier, the Patriots beat Indianapolis 45-7 to advance to the Super Bowl.

Wilfork reached into the vehicle and helped troopers remove 38-year-old Mary Ellen Brooks of Hanson, Mass., authorities said, and then made sure police didn't need any more help before heading home. "It wasn't a big deal," Wilfork said Monday.

Brooks was charged with drunken driving.
