Breakfast: Vince Wilfork returns to New England


In the aftermath of Sunday afternoon's 19-12 triumph over the Chiefs, Vince Wilfork was asked how he'll feel returning to New England for the first time as a Houston Texan.

He was stumped.

"I don't know," the veteran nose tackle said. "It will be a little different going into the visiting locker room and getting dressed in different uniforms."

Wilfork had a pair of tackles against Kansas City, and the Texans defense didn't let the Chiefs in the end zone. Through the first three quarters, the defense allowed a grand total of three points. With a Thursday night showdown looming at Gillette Stadium, Wilfork said his days as a Patriot are well in the rearview mirror.

"As far as the game goes, the game is played between the lines," Wilfork said. "I spent 11 great years up there and made great friends, and to this day still have a bunch of friends up there, but I'm a Texan now. I have a job to do, and I'm going to do my job."

Wilfork signed with the Texans in the spring of 2015, and faced his former team last December at NRG Stadium. This will be the first game Wilfork will play in Foxborough since the AFC Title win over the Colts on January 18 of 2015.
