FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Devin McCourty won't allow himself to get caught up in Peyton Manning's pre-snap antics on Sunday.
New England's Pro Bowl safety can't afford to. He'll end up losing.
"I would say the chess game is pretty one-sided. It's like being a kid going against a father in chess," McCourty said of trying to anticipate Manning's moves. "He's a very smart quarterback. He knows what he wants to do. Most of the time he knows what the defense is in, so if what he had planned isn't going to work, he's going to get the offense in something else.
