Gilman forced a fumble and snatched an interception during Los Angeles’ home loss.

The safety’s first turnover was a pick that came early in the second half. With 12:17 remaining in the third quarter, Gilman hauled in a pass thrown by Josh Allen and intended for Stefon Diggs. He returned the interception for no gain at the Los Angeles 42-yard line.

It was Gilman’s first interception of 2023 and the third of his NFL career.

Later in the game, Gilman forced a fumble by Bills running back James Cook. The former Orem Tiger knocked the ball free from Cook’s possession and the Chargers recovered the ball at the Buffalo 32-yard line with 7:19 left to play in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately for Gilman and the Chargers, the Bills went on to kick a go-ahead, game-winning field goal with 28 to go.

Buffalo captured a 24-22 victory in the Saturday showdown.

Gilman finished the contest with three total tackles, two solo tackles, one pass breakup, one forced fumble, and one interception.

He entered Week 16 having recorded 65 total tackles, 45 solo tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and five pass breakups this season.
