The starting cornerbacks of the Buffalo Bills once again bit on pump fakes and double moves. Today, it was Stephon Gilmore who gave up the big play.
With the Bills up 17-7 in the third quarter, the Browns went on a 13-play drive that resulted in a 22-yard touchdown to Travis Benjamin.
The Bills provided no rush on the play, but Gilmore did himself no favors getting tricked by the Browns wide receiver.
Gilmore felt confident that Benjamin was running a route to the inside, but Benjamin tricked him and was wide open in the left corner of the end zone.
All of a sudden, the Browns were within three, and victory was far from certain.
With Tom Brady and the Patriots coming into Buffalo, Gilmore needs to play aggressively, but not fall for pump-fakes and double moves.
