Patriots linebacker Darius Fleming wasn’t a huge factor in the Patriots win against the Chiefs but what he contributed off the field mattered much more.
Two nights before the Pats big playoff game against the Chiefs, Fleming disregarded his own health and safety to save a woman from a burning car.
Here’s what Fleming told the The Boston Globe
“She was attempting to kick the window out but she was a small lady,” Fleming said (via the Boston Globe). “I didn’t panic, but I was just like, ‘I got to get her out.’ I tried to break (the window) with my elbow, but that didn’t work, so I just started kicking the window. Eventually it broke, pulled her out, made sure she was OK, and I looked at my leg and I noticed it was bleeding pretty bad.”
Fleming’s story was later confirmed by writer Chris Villan.
