McCourty twins will be strangers this week

Jason and Devin McCourty might be closer in their relationship than they are in their looks.

And that is saying something, considering Jason of the Titans and Devin of the Patriots are identical twins. The McCourty twins are so close they even share a Twitter account - @McCourtyTwins.

But for the first time since they were kids playing pickup basketball in the yard as teenagers, the McCourtys will be going against each other on Sunday. Not directly, of course, as both are cornerbacks, but in terms of Tennessee hosting New England in the season opener.

“It’s going to be a unique opportunity. To grow up with a guy and we were always playing on the same team, so at this level to be able to face off, will be something special that we won’t realize after the game, but probably years from now,” Jason said via TitanInsider.com.

The brothers have put their tight relationship on hold until Sunday, according to Devin.

“I actually told him to lose my number this week. No side bets, no anything else. I’ll see and talk to him on Sunday when we get out on the field,” Devin said.

Jason, however, has a warning for his mom and any other family attending the game this week.

“She’s coming down and staying with me. I told her that if she’s staying with me and planning to come back to the house after the game that she’ll be rooting for the Titans,” Jason said.
