1. Sterling Moore - Was well on track for his fourth straight "no-show" — tying a team mark set by Jerod Mayo and Ellis Hobbs III on multiple occasions — and then the final 30 seconds happened. Still not sure if his strip was really a Lee Evans TD. And I think his yank down of Dennis Pitta at the five was definitely interference, but it went uncalled. Sterling Moore, welcome to your 15 minutes of fame.
2. Vince Wilfork — To do what he does, playing all those plays at his size (One Patriot asked aloud if Wilfork was "batting 400"), is flat-out amazing. Those of us who wondered how much of a play-maker a nose guard could be, had it answered in Wilfork's 3-solo, 3-assist, 1-sack performance yesterday. An absolute monster of epic proportions. He closed every hole on Ray Rice.
3. Rob Gronkowski - Looked like the ankle was twisted into a pretzel. And he's back about five plays later, blocking on Tom Brady's game-winning sneak. Seriously, he grabs this one — with a special nod to his compatriots Wes Welker and Aaron Hernandez — for a professional effort against ridiculously tight thick coverage by the Ravens. Together, the big three caught 18 balls for 196 yards.
Note: Only a true curmudgeon could come up with "No Shows" in an epic win like this.
1. Danny Woodhead - Son, you can't fumble on a kick return and expect to stick around here. Gained only 18 yards on six tries on a day when the holes were definitely there.
2. Pat Chung — Kid, the idea is to actually try and cover someone, not just let him run by, when the QB goes back to pass.
3. Julian Edelman — I know it's a tall task to play Anquan Boldin, but you gave up six catches for 101 yards to a guy who has seen better days. Much better days.
