Stephon Gilmore is one of the best defensive players in the NFL. That isn't really up for debate, as he's the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. But for whatever reason, Gilmore really struggled when covering DeVante Parker last season.

That certainly didn't go unnoticed by Miami Dolphins writer Safid Deen, who used the "Madden 21" trailer release to take a pretty hilarious shot at Gilmore.

The trailer shows Gilmore breaking up a pass intended for Parker, which frankly didn't happen much last season. In his final game of the season, covered primarily by Gilmore, Parker exploded for 8 catches and 137 yards – dominating the DPOY in what was a must-win game for New England.

Obviously the dig is all in good fun, but it'll be interesting to see whether or not Gilmore can redeem himself against Parker in 2020.
