Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning at Gillette Stadium for his weekly appearance on WEEI's Patriots Monday. Despite the defense allowing Peyton Manning to seemingly march down the field at will in the fourth quarter, Wilfork said he's looking more at the positives from Sunday's 31-28 victory over the Colts.
"The Colts are a great team," Wilfork said. "Every year we play these guys, it's always a nail-biter, it goes down to the wire. The biggest thing for us was to finish, to play 60 minutes of football this week. We got every bit of 60 minutes out of the game yesterday."
Added Wilfork: "Peyton, we forced him to throw three interceptions. You can say whatever you want to say about our defense. The fact of the matter is, he did throw us three."
Wilfork said one of the strengths of this defense is the players'...

UPDATE, 1:25 p.m.: According to a blog post on The Los Angeles Times' website, the 2-year-old who fell to his death after the Lakers' game at Staples Center on Sunday night had crawled out of his parents' sight, and they were looking for him when they discovered he had fallen 50 feet to the concrete below. Witnesses said the boy was moving his arms legs and head before paramedics took him out on a stretcher and to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The boy was identified as Lucas Anthony Tang, and he had been crawling around the third-level, top-tier suite during the game, a source told the Times.
The death was being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department's abused-child unit, a standard practice in situations such as this.
CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning and talked about the Patriots' dramatic victory over the Colts. The game was secured when James Sanders picked off a Peyton Manning pass in the final minute as the Colts were driving for the potential go-ahead touchdown.
Esiason credited the Patriots pass rush with forcing Manning to throw his pass off target. "He got a little greedy is what he did," Esiason said of Manning. "And again, I think he was spooked [by the pass rush]. … If he holds the ball, steps up, maybe another step, hits the shallow cross underneath, we might be talking about an overtime victory one way or the other."
Esiason said he doesn't believe that the Colts will go far in the postseason. "I can see them winning their division, simply because their division is pretty average right now," he...
