As if NFL quarterbacks weren’t already aware of his skill, Stephon Gilmore put together more tape.
The New England Patriots’ Pro Bowl cornerback took part in the first-ever ‘Thread the Needle’ challenge during the NFL’s Pro Bowl Skills Showdown on Thursday night. And to no surprise, he finished with two interceptions.
Gilmore and fellow AFC defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick of the Pittsburgh Steelers combined to intercept three passes against NFC quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins. It wasn’t enough though as the NFC still earned the win.
Gilmore recorded an interception against both Wilson and another Cousins.
