Watch Stephon Gilmore Record Two Picks During Pro Bowl Skills Showdown


As if NFL quarterbacks weren’t already aware, 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 combine to intercept three passes against NFC quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the NFC still earned the win.

Gilmore recorded one interception against both Wilson and another Cousins. You can watch it here:

Gilmore also took place in the dodgeball challenge, which the AFC won to propel them to the overall victory in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.

Gilmore and Patriots special teams captain Matthew Slater will play for the AFC in the Pro Bowl on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Orlando.
