The New England Patriots punched their ticket to the AFC Championship last weekend by upending the Kansas City Chiefs. However, the biggest accomplishment for one Patriots player may have come off the field.
As it turns out, New England linebacker Darius Fleming took the field with 22 stitches in his leg.
The gnarly gash which required the stitches occured when the NFL linebacker saved a woman from a burning car. Fleming reportedly pulled the woman through her window.

It is amazing to see these stories.
Well done, Fleming.
