ICYMI Best Of Social Media: Celebrating Stephon Gilmore On His Birthday
On Saturday, New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore celebrated his 30th birthday and social media reacted with some video highlights and wishes from his teammates and others across the NFL.
The 2019 NFL Defensive Player of the Year already has his first interception of the season and limited DeVante Parker to just four catches for 47 yards during last Sunday’s week one win over the Miami Dolphins.

In a cool moment, Stephon’s brother Steven recorded an interception on his birthday during Marshall University’s 17-7 upset win over 23rd ranked Appalachian State.
Unfortunately Gilmore won’t have much time to celebrate this weekend as he’ll have his hands full against Tyler Lockette and D.K. Metcalf tonight in Seattle.
“Those guys are very explosive,” Gilmore told reporters Friday.
“D.K. is very strong, very explosive, can make big catches. And Lockett is a great receiver, too. Great speed, good after the catch,” Gilmore said. “And they got a great quarterback, too. So, it’s going to be a big challenge for us.”
