‘We love you, bro’: Devin McCourty dedicated touchdown to James White

The Patriots' running back was in his team's thoughts.

Devin McCourty intercepted a pass from Russell Wilson in the first quarter Sunday and returned it for a touchdown.

Amid a day of tragedy for James White on Sunday, Devin McCourty made a noticeable gesture.

White’s mother and father were in a car accident in South Florida on Sunday. White’s father, Tyrone, was reportedly killed, and his mother, Lisa, is in critical condition.

White was not with the Patriots for the game.

The 28-year-old running back was in his team’s thoughts, and McCourty made sure to have a message ready for New England’s No. 28 when he took an early interception back for a touchdown.

“2-8, we love you, bro,” McCourty shouted into the microphone of the television broadcast in a reference to White.


The touchdown gave the Patriots a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.
