“I’ve never been 7-2 in this league. It’s crazy,” he said, a reference to his previous five years with the Buffalo Bills. “Oh man, we just have to keep it going. I haven’t won in my whole NFL career, so it feels good.”
Despite a holding penalty on a third down and being responsible for the only touchdown the Pats' defense gave up, Gilmore had a good game against the Broncos last night. He held Demaryius Thomas to just 44 yards on five catches.
Gilmore also gave a shout out to the Patriots' doctors, who helped him get through a concussion that kept him out of action for the last couple of games.
“I just listened to the doctors. They helped me out a lot. I just had to rest,” he said. “The only thing I didn’t like was that I couldn’t practice a couple days. I’m the type of person that likes to practice and work on my technique, but I felt like I played [well]. To miss a couple days, I was just blessed to be healthy again. …
“You just never know with those injuries. You just have to be careful, listen to the doctors, and be honest. I feel good now, so that’s a good thing.”
With Malcolm Butler's up-and-down season continuing, the emergence of Gilmore will be massive moving forward.
