It’s that time of the year again – time for the New England Patriots to start saving women and children from burning vehicles:
CBS Boston: Patriots linebacker Darius Fleming helped rescue a woman from a burning car. Fleming had to kick through the car window, suffering an injury that required him to get 22 stitches in his leg. It was a story that wasn’t known publicly until sports agent Andy Simms tweeted the news early Wednesday morning.
Two days later, Fleming suited up for the Patriots, recording a special teams tackle on a Knile Davis kick return following the Patriots’ second touchdown, and assisting on a tackle of Charcandrick West in the third quarter.
“We have great guys around here, no matter the time,” defensive captain Devin McCourty said Wednesday. “They’re always out in the community trying to save people. Darius was really quiet about it, but once the guys on the team got a hold of it, we forced him to give a speech. He explained it very simple: he saw a woman’s car smoking, and he just jumped out of his car. He’ll admit there were probably easier solutions he could have done, but I think it was nice and dramatic to kick in the window and pull her out.”
McCourty said that Fleming’s story was met with cheers from his teammates.
“I think it represents his character,” linebacker and captain Rob Ninkovich said. “He’s a great person and anyone in a situation where someone’s life could be in danger, you have to act on it and not just watch. He acted, did what he had to do, and it’s definitely someone you want in a situation like that, kicking through windows and taking stitches. It’s great what he did.”
Special teams captain and locker room leader Matthew Slater also commented on Fleming’s character.
“We have guys around here that understand the important things in life and they value the right things. It really speaks to their character, the way they were brought up and the things they believe in. Darius has been a standup guy since he got here, and when I heard the story I wasn’t surprised at all,” Slater said. “The way he carries himself, the way he treats people, he is a tremendous young man. We’re all very proud of him. You never know what to do in that situation, but what he did was remarkable.”

Last year it was Vince Wilfork pulling a family out of a burning vehicle on Route 1. This year it’s a special teamer making a special play on the side of the road. Is there anything you can’t do if you’re a member of the Patriots? This is what we do in New England – we beat losers, win Super Bowls, and save women and children.
This guy was drafted by the 49ers in 2012. Guess how many women and children he saved from burning cars out there? None. Next thing you know he’s in Foxboro saving lives, getting injured in the process, beating the Kansas Chiefs, and not even telling anyone about it. He’s just that humble. Oh yea, and of course he graduated from Notre Dame. Because this is the type of human being the Irish create after four years in South Bend.
Just another example of how we are clearly God’s team. He watches us over us and every single person who puts on a Pats uniform is one of his angels. #Blessed.
