Vince Wilfork Named Patriots Honorary Captain For AFC Championship

The New England Patriots announced Sunday morning that former defensive tackle Vince Wilfork will serve as honorary team captain for the AFC Championship game.

Wilfork played 11 seasons of his 13 in New England, winning two Super Bowls at the start and end of his tenure. He finished his career with the Houston Texans, retiring in 2016.

In 158 career regular season games as a Patriot, Wilfork totaled 522 tackles to go along with 35 quarterback hits, 16 sacks, five forced fumbles and three interceptions.

“I’m very honored to be today’s honorary captain for the New England Patriots!!!” Wilfork said on Twitter.

The Patriots will take on the Chiefs for the right to go to the Super Bowl at 6:40 tonight on CBS.
