New England Patriots star Devin McCourty has set his sights on ending the Baltimore Ravens' four-game winning streak this weekend, and with it any chance of John Harbaugh's team from reaching the playoffs, reports

The 26-year-old safety is still reeling from the Patriots' playoff heartache back in January, after being knocked out by the Ravens last season.

Victory for the Patriots at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland this weekend would give the Boston-based franchise an excellent chance at the conference's second seed.

Meanwhile, another Ravens victory puts Baltimore one win away from a third straight crown in the AFC North.

"I'll put it this way: There would be no better feeling than us beating them Sunday and ... we eliminate their season right there," McCourty told CSN New England on Thursday.

"For me and a lot of my teammates, there'd be no better feeling."

The Ravens have one of the most stingy defences in the NFL, and have allowed just 18.6 points per game since Week 6.

It will prove a tough challenge for the Patriots - who are still without the services of Rob Gronkowski - but know that they need a result, and must improve their touchdown efficiency.
