Slay shuts down Jefferson in dominant performance

James Harden waited and waited and flipped the football up and down and around his back and waited some more.

Finally, Darius Slay emerged from the field and made his way through the tunnel.

“You should have had three or four today!” Harden shouted.
Slay agreed and maybe Harden was right.

But there’s no denying that Slay was downright dominant in the Eagles’ 24-7 win on Monday Night Football at the Linc.

The Eagles’ CB1 showed why he’s still an elite cornerback, picking off two passes (the first ball went to Harden), breaking up five more and shutting down one of the best receivers in the NFL.

This game is why the Eagles traded for Slay. This game is why he makes nearly $17 million per season.
