Even after a slew of questionable calls that seemed to be stacking the deck in favor of the Patriots, the Bills still had a chance to win the game late.
The Bills were down 14 points on three different occasions, but they kept fighting back. With the Pats seemingly destined to blow another double-digit fourth-quarter lead, the Bills worked their way from their own 20 to the Patriots 15.
But McCourty jumped up and picked off a ball that otherwise could have been caught, ending the threat and allowing the Pats to move to 6-3.
With the Dolphins losing to the Titans and the Jets likely to fall in Seattle, the Pats are in the process of nailing down yet another AFC East crown.
