Stephon Gilmore has notched five interceptions in 2016 as he prepares to sign a new contract this offseason. He returned his latest inside the Pittsburgh ten-yard line, setting up a Tyrod Taylor touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins.
Gilmore has the most picks for Buffalo since Jairus Byrd’s five in 2012, right before he left on a massive contract of his own. Gilmore will enter the offseason as a free agent where he is likely to sign a big deal. It’s his 14th career interception.
Ben Roethlisberger has been spraying the ball over the field. He previously threw an interception to Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and another near-miss to safety Corey White.
If not for Roethlisberger’s interceptions, Buffalo wouldn’t even be in this game. They were in the red zone when he threw his first pick and Buffalo scored a touchdown on his latest, leading to at least a 10-point swing. The Steelers have outgained Buffalo considerably today but the score stands at 14-7.
Here’s the touchdown:
