Top Plays of 2010: #7 – McCourty’s Heads Up Pick of Favre

McCourty had some great picks in 2010, but this one might just be my favorite. Not only did it come against Grandpa Favre, but it demonstrated protypical Patriots football – keeping your head in the game and playing until you hear the whistle. It would have been all too easy for McCourty to give up on this play, but at a critical juncture – late in the 3rd, up four, with the Vikings driving and gaining steam – he came up with the big ricochet grab to force the turnover.
