The Patriots defense has had a brilliant start to the 2019 season and one of the unit’s longtime stalwarts has been named the AFC’s defensive player of the month.

Safety Devin McCourty got the nod from the NFL on Thursday.

McCourty intercepted a pass in each of the Patriots’ four September wins to help spearhead an effort that saw the team allow 13 points to opposing offenses. The only touchdown in that total came on the ground and the Patriots have allowed the third-least passing yards so far this season.

In addition to his four interceptions, McCourty also made 13 tackles and knocked away five passes in September.

  1. If the Pats D keep this up it won’t matter that their offense are virtually all in the infirmary.

    Patriots played 4 crap offenses this month, wait until November and December when they play real offenses.

    I wouldn’t say that about the Steelers when Roethlisberger was still playing in week 1.

  5. wait until November and December when they play real offenses.

    yea, historically bill belichick defenses have struggled against “real offenses”: 2018 LA Rams, Chargers, Chiefs; all the way back to the manhole clots and jim kelly Bills.

    ….when you continue to discount all of their accomplishments because you need the attention. Some people crave white castle. Others crave attention.

    Kind of like those 6 SB awards? Let me guess, they played bad teams in those games too.

    Well, there’s no denying you are the expert on indentifyng bad teams. The question is, why did you build a BILLON dollar stadium for one?

  12. The Kryptonite to the AFC Offensive Player of The Month. He’ll have to be the way significant injury is hitting the offense. I have to think that call from Brady to Gronk is going to be made sooner rather than later.
