Patriots DB McCourty making most of the season

(Continued)

Kind of like he did against Miami.

McCourty read quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s eyes and darted toward the sideline. After jumping in front of receiver Mike Wallace, he somehow managed to pass the ball to cornerback Marquice Cole before his feet landed out of bounds.

Despite coaching the acrobatic Polamalu for the past seven years, witnessing some of the most athletic moves ever made by a safety, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin still was in awe over a big play he hopes isn’t made again this week.

“That play last week on the sideline, that tells you everything you need to know about him,” Tomlin said. “He is a smart and selfless player. To tip that ball back inbounds to that other DB is impressive.”
