The Patriots protection has led the best way for the group as they’ve received 10 of their first 11 video games this season and cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been on the forefront of the unit’s efforts all through the season.
Sunday’s 13-9 win over the Cowboys was no exception. Gilmore’s chief job was masking large receiver Amari Cooper and Cooper ended the day with out a catch for the primary time since he joined the Cowboys in a commerce in the course of the 2018 season.
Cooper had one catch worn out by a penalty and a diving try within the fourth quarter was dominated a catch briefly earlier than replay made it apparent that the ball hit the turf. Whereas Cooper was shut out, Gilmore had an interception earlier than the day was out.
“It was enjoyable,” Gilmore stated in feedback to reporters after the sport. “I used to be simply making an attempt to get my arms on him each snap.”
Head coach Invoice Belichick known as it “one other nice effort” by Gilmore, who has earned many votes as the highest cornerback within the league this season. Sunday’s effort seemingly added just a few nods in that path.
