What better way to celebrate winning the AFC Championship than by rescuing a confirmed drunk woman in an overturned Jeep? Vince Wilfork of the New England Patriots certainly can’t think of any. On his way home from the Patriots’ victory over the Colts on Sunday, Wilfork happened upon an overturned Jeep Wrangler near Gillette Stadium.

By the time police arrived, Wilfork had gotten out of his car to placate the driver, Mary Ellen Brooks.

Below is the official police statement:

“At 12:45 a.m., troopers assigned to the State Police Barracks in Foxboro responded to reports of a vehicle rolled over on Route 1 in the town of Foxboro. Troopers arrived to find a 2015 Jeep Wrangler rolled onto its side. To their surprise, New England Patriots Defensive Tackle Vince Wilfork was beside the vehicle checking on the operator. The operator of the vehicle, 38-year-old MARY ELLEN BROOKS of Hanson, was unable to get out of the vehicle. Trooper Kenneth Proulx stated that he held the drivers door of the vehicle open, and Vince Wilfork reached in and helped lift the operator out of the vehicle with one hand.”

With one freaking hand! (The dude is 325 pounds, after all.)

Wilfork issued his own statements on the event:

While police arrested and charged Brooks for driving under the influence, angry Colts fans are left wondering if maybe Wilfork had actually just deflated her tires before the accident, much like the Pats deflated the balls during the game. It’s not like Colts fans have much else to do with their time since, you know, they’re not going to the Super Bowl.
