Rob Ninkovich praised for his strip-sack, recovery

Patriots coach Bill Belichick lauded the instinctive play of defensive end Rob Ninkovich, who forced a Mark Sanchez fumble in the pocket and made the recovery to put the icing on Sunday’s 29-26 overtime victory over the Jets at Gillette Stadium.

“It’s something we talk about and work on each week,’’ Belichick said during his weekly teleconference, which was moved up one day to Monday as the team began preparations for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams in London.
