FOXBORO --Offensive lineman Vince Wilfork went seven NFL seasonswithout an interception. But Sunday marked his second career pick in the lastthree games.

With that comes surprise from some. But Patriots coach BillBelichick wasnt stunned to see the big man come down with anotherinterception.

It doesnt surprise me, if he gets his hands on it, saidBelichick on Monday. Hes got really good hands. Weve had him out therecatching punts and hes very athletic. He has very good hand-eye coordination.

He makes those plays in practice. I mean, Im not sayingevery day, but weve seen him catch a ball out there. If he gets his hands onit, hes like a vacuum cleaner. He pulls it right in.
