Not much has changed for the New England Patriots, even with Antonio Brown’s short-lived tenure with the team.
Tom Brady is throwing touchdowns, Bill Belicheck is running a tight operation as head coach, and South Carolina Gamecock legend Stephon Gilmore is still making his case as the best cornerback in the NFL.
Gilmore presented more proof Sunday in New England’s 30-14 win over the New York Jets. As usual, the Rock Hill native’s impact went far beyond the stat sheet (three tackles).
He held Jets receiver Ronnie Anderson to just three catches for 11 yards. That was a key component in New England limiting the New York to just 98 receiving yards and no points.
On the season, Gilmore has 11 tackles and one interception that he returned for a touchdown.
