Squeaky clean Patriots at it again


The immaculate reputation the New England Patriots like to think they boast took another hit as Vince Wilfork was nailed with his fourth fine of the season.

Wilfork will lose $5,000 for his face-mask penalty against San Diego last Sunday and is planning on appealing the decision.

Wilfork was fined $15,000 for poking Brandon Jacobs in the face in Week 17. He was hit up for $5,000 against Dallas for interfering with Jason Witten and another $12,500 for hitting J.P. Losman of Buffalo back in September. However, Wilfork appealed that fine and it was dropped to $2,500.

But hey, the Giants are the dirtiest team in football, right?
