2. Stephon Gilmore has some pick-6 fun

Dan Quinn's defense is a lot of fun to watch. Led by Micah Parsons who has 12.5 sacks, their pass-rushers have gotten home for 39 sacks on the year. They've also been able to force quarterbacks to pass the ball much quicker than they would like simply due to their ability to get into the backfield in a hurry.

That's led to their corners biting on the ball and recording 13 picks on the season. The leader in this area is DaRon Bland who has eight of them — just one year after recording five as a rookie. If that wasn't enough, the second-year standout has taken five of those interceptions back for touchdowns — which is an NFL record.

Second on the list is Stephon Gilmore who has two interceptions this year, which is his first with Dallas. The veteran cornerback might not be as flashy as Bland is but he's still more than capable of covering any opposing team's No. 1 wideout. Just this past week, he put the clamps on A.J. Brown, who made the mistake of trash talking Gilmore before the game.

In Week 15, Gilmore will be motivated once again as he returns to Buffalo, which is where his impressive career began. This bold prediction is that the Bills test him, also making the mistake of thinking the 33-year-old isn't the player he once was and he makes them pay by recording his first pick-six of the year.
