Appearing on his Double Coverage podcast with twin brotherJason, Devin opened up a bit on the Patriots' loss to the Bills last Saturday on Wild Card Weekend.

Josh Allen torched the Patriots defense, throwing for over 300 yards and five touchdowns in the Bills' 47-17 win.

“It was just a game, as a defender, that was very frustrating because you just felt like you did no right in the game no matter what,” Devin said. “The play calls, they kept changing. We kept trying something different. I mean, (defensive play-caller) Steve (Belichick) called everything we had Saturday night, and just nothing went right for us. And I would say the disappointing part about that is when that happens, I think everybody’s played in a game where you felt like, man, we just can’t get anything going. But for that to show up in a playoff game … (it’s) obviously not a great feeling.”

New England was short-handed in the secondary with starting cornerback Jalen Mills on the COVID list, as well as having several players banged up at linebacker.

Still, Devin was proud of the progress the team made this season.

“To turn that around and have a chance in the playoffs I think speaks to the future in New England with some of the young, talented players they have,” McCourty said. “I think the future’s going to be bright. … I think the future’s really bright on what they’ll be able to develop and accomplish in the years coming.”
