With the New England Patriots being one of the hottest teams in the NFL of late, you could say that a lot of credit with the improved defensive play could be attributed to the defensive captain Rob Ninkovich. During their current 5-game winning streak, Ninkovich has put up Pro-Bowl caliber numbers and highlights: including a 3-sack game against division rival Buffalo, a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown against the Chicago Bears, and an interception in a showdown with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

The New England Patriots are currently in 1st place in the AFC and with their defensive captain playing at a high level that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon. You can watch Ninkovich and the Patriots take on the Indianapolis Colts on November 16th on Sunday Night Football at 8:30 PM ET.
