Eagles CB Darius Slay came up big when it was most needed:
Two interceptions in a game when ball control dictated the winner — the Eagles 21-18.
Even NBC Sports Peter King, who hasn’t written much about the Eagles this season, anointed Slay one of his defensive players of the week:
Darius Slay, cornerback, Philadelphia.
In a bruising defensive game in Charlotte, Slay had two interceptions.
His first, in the first quarter, gave the Eagles great field position at the Carolina 10, setting up a field goal.
His second, covering D.J. Moore, set up the Eagles near midfield in the third quarter, but they couldn’t convert it to points.
Slay added three tackles, one for a loss.
