Devin McCourty on life after Tom Brady for the Pats: It's about winning games

Devin McCourty understands why expectations are low for the New England Patriots following the departure of Tom Brady, but insists they remain focused on winning without their long-time quarterback.

Brady ended his long and successful association with the Patriots earlier this month, opting to leave as a free agent and continue his storied career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

His time in New England included six Super Bowl wins working under head coach Bill Belichick, who must now find a way to succeed with a new quarterback at the helm.

The experienced Brian Hoyer has returned to the Pats to join Jarrett Stidham, selected by the team in the fourth round of last year's draft, and Cody Kessler on the roster.
