FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Outside linebacker Rob Ninkovich earned this week's "Dirty Show" belt as the player coaches felt had the best week of practice on the scout team leading up to a victory.

This is the first time that Ninkovich, who has earned a top role in the 3-4 defense, has been a practice player of the week. He joined running back Thomas Clayton and offensive linemen Rich Ohrnberger and Mark LeVoir as practice players of the week -- those who the coaching staff feel best prepared the team in the days leading up to a victory.
