On the biggest defensive play of the game, Stephon Gilmore preserved Buffalo’s 27-20 lead with an interception in the end zone on 3rd-and-goal from the Bills five-yard line with under four minutes left in the game. What you may not know is Gilmore, who had RB Jordan Todman in coverage, did not believe the ball was coming to his assigned receiving target, so he improvised to go make a play.
“It was a three… they had the back out and number one, I was guarding the back,” said Gilmore. ”I knew they weren’t going to throw it to number one, so I looked over at number two where the receivers were, I slid off and picked the ball off. I was basically reading the quarterback, I wasn’t really paying the running back any attention. I was looking at the receiver and I was able to make a play on the ball.”
The interception was Gilmore’s second in as many games.
