Game of highs, lows for Devin McCourty

FOXBOROUGH — Nobody was more relieved to see Stephen Gostkowski kick not one but two important field goals — one to tie, the other to win — than Devin McCourty, who had quite an up-and-down game on Sunday.

McCourty scored his first NFL touchdown, taking a kickoff back 104 yards after the Jets had taken a 7-0 lead on their opening possession. What took the Jets nearly five minutes to build was erased by McCourty in 12 seconds.
