Stephon Gilmore made his 2021 debut with the Carolina Panthers — not the New England Patriots. No, the Patriots traded Gilmore away for a sixth-round pick after he missed the first half of the season with an injury (though there was some controversy surrounding the injury). Gilmore made an instant impact for the Panthers, with a fourth-quarter interception that sealed the team’s win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.

It looked like Gilmore was a great fit for Carolina, which used the cornerback as a stopper for tight end Kyle Pitts, the top option for Atlanta with Calvin Ridley inactive on Sunday. Here’s a look at the clutch takeaway from Gilmore.

Patriots fans were not doing well after seeing Gilmore make such a huge play.
