FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Chandler Jones is tackling the quarterback again, Vince Wilfork is stuffing the middle and Darrelle Revis is smothering receivers.
Jones is the Patriots' best pass rusher but missed the previous six games with a hip injury. He returned and had 1 1/2 sacks against Ryan Tannehill.
"If we hold a team to 13 points," McCourty said, "there's a high chance our offense is going to go out there and get 14 or more each game."
The New England Patriots defense is getting stingier and healthier as the playoffs approach,NFL Jerseys China.
In the second half, the defense has been at its best.
"The biggest stat was 13 points," Wilfork said. "I don't care how many yards you give up."

Revis has been shutting down receivers all season and Brandon Browner has been hitting them hard at the other spot. Safety Devin McCourty is the steady man in the middle. And the two interceptions against Miami were by safeties Patrick Chung and Duron Harmon.
Against Miami, Hightower was second on the team with eight tackles, Jones had seven and each forced a fumble.
Linebacker Dont'a Hightower also returned after missing one game with a shoulder injury. He resumed calling defensive signals, a job he's done since two-time Pro Bowler Jerod Mayo went on injured reserve after the sixth game.
The secondary also is deep, led by two cornerbacks picked up in the offseason.
Tom Brady and his prolific offense enjoy watching that from the sideline.
The Patriots lead the NFL with 31.6 points per game and have allowed the eighth fewest,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, 20.0.
The competition gets weaker in the next game when the Patriots (11-3) visit the New York Jets (3-11) on Sunday before finishing at home against the Buffalo Bills (8-6).
"Anytime you get playmakers back, it's always going to help your team,Cheap NFL jerseys China," Wilfork said.
"They're game-changers," Harmon said of those plays. "They change the mood of the team,Jerseys Wholesale, the fans,Cheap NBA Jerseys China, and it's just good to get them."
"The more that you can do as a player, then, obviously, the more value you can create for yourself and hopefully help us win the game."
"The more the merrier," Revis said.
Even 325-pound defensive tackle Wilfork picked off a pass.
In the last two games, it's allowed no points and a total of 213 yards. In the last five, it's given up just one touchdown and three field goals in the second half, outscoring opponents 82-16.
They're ranked in the middle of the pack in yards allowed — 16 teams have given up fewer. But they limit the amount of points those yards produce. They gave up 384 yards last Sunday to the Miami Dolphins but won 41-13 to clinch their sixth straight AFC East title.
"There's pressure to score every time we get the ball and that's what we're trying to do," Brady said, "but it's also a good feeling knowing that if you have to punt,Cheap Jerseys, you've got a defense that's not going to give up points too easily."
"Defensively, all of our players are asked to do a lot of different things," defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said, "whether it's play man coverage, play zone coverage, rush the quarterback, stop the run, play in the front, play in the secondary.
The Patriots had at least one interception in six of the last seven games and are fourth in the NFL in turnover differential.
But with the return of Jones, Hightower and backup defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, who had been on injured reserve with a designation to return, the defensive front seven has great depth.
"I felt great," Jones said. "Just a few months ago I was on crutches. So for me to be out there running with my team, I got a little emotional."
They've been doing more than enough to complement the high-scoring offense.
