Stephon Gilmore on Kelvin Benjamin non-TD catch: 'I think I could've picked it'

The call made to overturn Kelvin Benjamin's potential touchdown in the second quarter was the talk among Bills players and fans. It also resonated with the defensive back who was playing Benjamin -- former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

“He had to make a great catch and get his feet down," Gilmore said. "I figured he didn’t get his feet down because he was so close to the sideline.

"I should’ve played the ball because I think I could’ve picked it. He’s so big so I tried to knock it out when he came down, but he didn’t get two feet in.”

Touchdown catch that wasn't overshadows Kelvin Benjamin's breakout game

Patriots linebacker Elandon Roberts lauded Gilmore for his defense.

"He (Gilmore) had the outside contained," Roberts said. "It’s his job to contain the outside, and that’s just what he did. He really just did a good job containing the receiver.”

Gilmore, who hasn't been shy about many of his comments about his former team, now has two wins against the Bills.

“We’re just trying to get better and better every week," he said. "They didn’t score that many, so we didn’t let up many points. We started a little slow, played a little bit better in the second half and that’s how we came out with the win.”
