Stephon Gilmore dropped some spicy trash talk after winning the game for the Colts
After sealing a victory for the Indianapolis Colts over the Denver Broncos, cornerback Stephon Gilmore had something to say.
Thursday’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos was hard to watch but both defenses showed up, especially Indy’s. The Colts were ultimately able to win the game 12-9 in large part because Stephon Gilmore was the best player on the field. Acquired by Indy this offseason, Gilly once again showed why he was a priority signing.
With two minutes left in the fourth quarter, Russell Wilson tested Gilmore in the end zone and Gilly came up with the interception. This allowed the Colts to tie the game and force overtime. After Indy took the lead in overtime, the Broncos drove down the field and faced a fourth down with the game on the line. Wilson once again tested the veteran Gilmore and he was able to deflect the pass to seal the win for Indy.
Gilmore, who’s often quiet and reserved had some things to say in his postgame interview. With his competitive energy still flowing, Gilly talked about how Russell Wilson and the Broncos kept trying him. After delivering on the field, Gilmore delivered one of the coldest lines of the season saying, “He kept trying me so I made him pay.”
Stephon Gilmore made the Broncos pay for trying him
Gilmore finished the game with five tackles, two pass breakups, and one interception. In both of Indy’s wins, Stephon has been the biggest impact player. That was the case when he shadowed Travis Kelce and helped the Colts upset the Chiefs. He continues to prove why Indianapolis went all out to sign him this offseason.
Many thought at 32 years old, Gilmore wouldn’t be able to provide the same impact for a team at corner, however, it’s clear that’s not the case and Gilly also spoke about that postgame. He told the media, “Yeah, I’m older, but all you gotta do is turn the film on. I don’t like when people say you’re old. Just watch the film.”
The Colts obviously watched the film and that’s why they made the decision to sign him to a two-year deal. One year to the day after the New England Patriots shockingly released Stephon Gilmore, he won a game for Indianapolis. If the rest of the teams on Indy’s schedule are wise, they’ll watch the film and know not to try Gilly Lock, because he will make them pay.
