ATLANTA — Stephon Gilmore put the capper on one of the most memorable single seasons in recent Patriots’ history on Sunday, becoming just the seventh player of the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady Era to land a Super Bowl ring, a first-team All-Pro nod and a Pro Bowl nomination all in the same year.

Toss in the game-changing defensive play in the win over the Rams, and it’s safe to say it’s been a dream season for the veteran cornerback.
