Patriots defensive snaps: The lone snap not played by Devin McCourty was the Hail Mary, which was a coaching decision that backfired. Also, a notable reduction for Jason McCourty (31 of 48), as J.C. Jackson (38) took his spot as the No. 2 CB option in the base and 3-safety nickel package. The D played more base in second half to become more stout vs. run.
