Gilmore tweets fitting nickname for Patriots' J.C. Jackson after latest INT originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

New England Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson is having a fantastic 2020 NFL season, and one of his teammates has a fitting nickname for him.

Jackson tallied his fourth interception in seven games during the second quarter of Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

The 24-year-old defensive back picked off Bills quarterback Josh Allen and returned the ball close to midfield. The Patriots kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive to enter halftime trailing 7-6.

Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore did not play Sunday after being ruled out Saturday with a knee injury. He was no doubt watching his teammates, though, and tweeted his reaction to Jackson's latest interception.

Mr. Interception is a worthy nickname for Jackson, whose 12 interceptions since the start of the 2018 season lead the Patriots.
