BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — In sports, there's an expression: "I'd run through a brick wall for that guy!"
Well, you can bet defensive captain Devin McCourty had his Patriots teammates feeling that way in the huddle before Super Bowl 53. And now, thanks to NFL Films, we can hear what they heard before that 13-3 win over the Rams.
After that speech in the clip above, the Pats defense went out and put forth arguably the best performance we've seen in Super Bowl history. The prolific Rams offense totaled just 260 yards.
Check out some of the other highlights from the Mic'd Up special, like Head Coach Bill Belichick's reaction to the win:
