Stephon Gilmore Explains Mindset Of Patriots’ Defense After Consecutive Wins
The New England Patriots won two straight games, and fans couldn’t be happier. New England entered Sunday’s game with a weak win, and players were also able to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers. In Week 13, the Patriots confronted an inferior opponent with awful special teams issues. Patriots players had the most incredible win of the season, and their 45-0 victory was really brilliant. Things have started to look a lot better for the team. Veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore talked about the current mindset. We bet his teammates will agree on this one.
The Patriots’ defense destroyed an opposing offense for the first time in 2020. They played against rookie signal-caller Justin Herbert. This was the second win for the Patriots, and their defense was pretty strong. Patriots players were able to hold Kyler Murray and the Cardinals to 17 points in Week 12. They did their thing against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10.
Stephon Gilmore has the right mindset
Players can finally believe in their identity and defensive potential.
“Yeah, I think we took a step forward,” Gilmore told reporters Monday. “I think we have an aggressive mindset. Going into every game, we try to throw the first punch. And I feel like we play physical in the back end and up front. We feed off each other. Whoever makes plays, we’re excited for each other. We’re going to try to keep that going each and every week.”
Gilmore and his teammates will play against the Los Angeles Rams on “Thursday Night Football.” LA enters Week 14 ranked third in yards per game behind a sixth-best passing attack.
“They have a great team, great defense, great offense,” the veteran cornerback said. “So, I just feel like it’s another measuring stick of where we want to be. We have to go through theses guys to get to where we want to go.”
Things look well for the team, and they have a chance to win another game and hopefully, make the playoffs. Gilmore is ready to go and so is veteran quarterback Cam Newton.
