Mass State Police say the operator of the vehicle, 38-year-old Mary Ellen Brooks of Hanson, was unable to get out of the vehicle. Trooper Kenneth Proulx stated that he held the drivers door of the vehicle open, and Wilfork reached in and helped lift the operator out of the vehicle with one hand.
Wilfork left the scene after the troopers didn’t need any more assistance. Brooks was placed under arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

Added Kravitz: “When I heard it, I thought, man, that’s...

“It was just a great win by our team,” Brady said. “It was an exciting one to be a part of. We put a lot of work into this year, and then to have it culminate in really a great all-around performance last night, it was pretty sweet for everybody.”
The Patriots were 2-2 after four games and raising concern for their inconsistent play before turning things around. Brady said he takes no additional satisfaction because of where the team was at the end of September.
“I don’t think it does [matter],” he said...
