Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore noticeably better against Bucs

New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore certainly has endured a lot of criticism in his first few games in New England.

But Thursday night showed he can play at high level, something Pats fans would like to continue seeing.

Gilmore covered Bucs WR Mike Evans most of the night, limiting him to just 49 yards on 5 catches.

“I was out to prove something,” Gilmore said, via WEEI.com. 

“Just getting used to playing with these guys. They have a good secondary, D-line and linebackers. It was fun today. A lot better today. I was locked in on the communication. Following Evans, so that made it a little easier. I got my guy, I’m good.”
