McCourty Twins Ready To Face Each Other For First Time Sunday
" BOSTON (CBS) -  Devin and Jason McCourty have a lot in common, as would be expected from a pair of twins.

But come Sunday in Tennessee, they’ll be sharing something for the first time: a pro field.

The McCourty’s will play against each other for the first time in their NFL careers on Sunday, as the Patriots and Titans kick off their 2012 regular seasons.

They shared the field in college, both playing defensive back at Rutgers. But now, although their relationship off the field is a good one, this week will add a new chapter to their sibling rivalry.
