Vince Wilfork, beloved by New England Patriots fans, was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl Champion before leaving the Boston fan-base. He was known for clogging the middle and silencing the run game, but his screen recognition wasn't bad either.

Awareness and football IQ are intangibles that are sometimes overlooked in the NFL. Wilfork had both on this play, seeking out the designed underneath screen and slipping through the blockers to end Donald Jones, and this play.

This moment on repeat could represent the Buffalo Bills history against the New England Patriots as a whole. It has not been pretty during the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era, and Wilfork played a role in that recent stretch of dominance.

Either way, the Bills probably didn't try this trickery again. The Jones drag route almost went for a touchdown, just not for Buffalo!
