Cousins seems to have had trouble finding Slay. The four-time Pro Bowler recorded five passes defended and he made one tackle. He helped hold Justin Jefferson to just six catches for 12 targets and 48 receiving yards, Jefferson’s longest play that night was just 11 for his yards.
According to Next Gen Stats, Slay “scored more interceptions than allowed (1) as the closest defender with five targets to Justin Jefferson in the game.”
