2015 GIF of the Year: Air Wilfork vs Blount is a Bowling Ball

The 4th seeds take over! 4. Air Wilfork I'm not going to front. I can watch this a thousand times and I still won't have any idea if Vince Wilfork actually blocked this kick. Regardless, can you believe that both games against the Jets came down to the Patriots special teams blocking a field goal? That's the difference between beating the Colts at Gillette in the AFC Championship and beating them in Indianapolis. The results would've been the same, but could you imagine? I don't know why the Patriots were so good at blocking kicks in 2014. But I will love every single one. 13. Blount is a...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel vs James. Develin.

The third seeds play host! 3. Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel Do you remember back in Week 3 when the Patriots needed a final red zone stand to beat the Oakland Raiders? That was a dark time. Luckily Vince Wilfork flashed his athleticism to snag an interception to seal the victory. Rob Ninkovich broke up the pass. Logan Ryan kind of just got hit in the face with it, but Instant Offense directs the football with his face better than anyone else. Wilfork gets the ball and wants to go to the ground. OH NO NINKOVICH IS RIGHT THERE! WATCH OUT! Wilfork does an awkward little squirrel jump over...

Sealver Siliga on the 'road to recovery'

New England Patriots defensive tackle Sealver Siliga's offseason looks like it will have a rehab-type focus. That's because Siliga posted the following picture on Instagram on Thursday: The Patriots had used their lone injured reserve/designated to return spot on Siliga during the 2014 season, as he played in just seven regular-season games (five starts) because of a foot injury. But upon his return in early December, Siliga quickly emerged as a starter next to Vince Wilfork, which carried into the playoffs.

Armchair GM: What to do with Vince Wilfork?

The Patriots' defensive tackle can best be described as "big": he is a big man, plays a big role and has a big cap hit in 2015. Vince Wilfork is a big man; not only due to his 6'2'', 325 lb frame. He is also a big presence for the New England Patriots both on the field – as one of the team's most reliable defenders – as well as off it – as the senior member of the defense and via his charitable work. He also has a big impact on the Patriots' 2015 salary cap. In March 2014, Wilfork and the Patriots agreed on a one-year contract with a two-year option added, to lower his $11.6...
