NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The time has come for the NFL debut of the McCourty brothers' family feud.

Devin and Jason have been competing, pushing and downright fighting with each other the way only identical twins can since birth.

The twins will play against each other for the first time - not counting pickup basketball games - when Jason's Tennessee Titans host New England in the regular season opener Sunday.

Let the record show Devin is the oldest by 27 minutes. But Jason played first at Rutgers and beat Devin into the NFL by a year, though Devin got the edge back as a first-round draft pick in 2010.

Jason cheered on his brother as the Patriots won the AFC championship in January, but says this will be their biggest battle yet.
