Eagles Darius Slay playfully threatens legal action after Patrick Mahomes’ connection in memorable win vs Chiefs

The Chiefs Kingdom got overshadowed by the “Fly Eagles Fly” chant as the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the Week 11 match. Unlike most other matches this week, the clash between these two teams was predicted to be one of the most high-voltage matches as both are going strong this season and, obviously, both teams are leading their respective divisions.

The match indeed witnessed fierce competition, as the whole scenario changed within the last 30 minutes. The Chiefs failed to secure a win despite having a 10-point lead. However, though Philly won the contest, their cornerback, Darius Slay, has a stern yet playful warning against the defending champion.

Darius Slay’s playful threat after being juked by Chiefs’ star

During the Eagles 21-17 win over the Chiefs, wide receiver Rashee Rice earned extra attention from Slay. The Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes hit the rookie star for a 14-yard gain on first-and-five midway through the first quarter.

The receiver sent Darius flying with phenomenal footwork to connect with his signal-caller, and the Eagles CB surely didn’t enjoy it. While the league’s veteran players have frequently discussed their struggle to tackle the emerging talents in the league, the Philly vet came up with a social media post to deliver a threat to the young star for his outstanding athleticism.

“I need all rice info lol bra getting sued for sure.. I got kids at home. “

While the Chiefs WRs are reportedly dropping 9% of the passes thrown their way in the 2023 NFL season, Rice has been doing his job on the next level. He finished third in receptions, targets, as well as receiving yards during the Week 11 match while setting a 36-420-4 line through 10 games. He also has a minimum of four grabs in five of the last six games.

Eagles ease past Chiefs in Super Bowl rematch

The Eagles would not forget the nightmare of losing the Super Bowl to the Chiefs in February earlier this year. While a potential Lombardi trophy could ease their pain, they indeed got relieved for a while by smashing the Chiefs by four points.

The Eagles seemed lackluster at the start of the Week 11 match that hit the headlines for adverse weather conditions as well. However, they bounced back later to shut down the defending champion, albeit their veteran Jason Kelce was eyeing making his rival’s experience a bit more “bittersweet”.

“Listen, I’m really happy. I would have probably been happier if we would have put together a really dominant performance offensively and played great. I think the fact that we didn’t do that makes it a littler bittersweet. I think the defense is largely why we won the game today. Hats off to those guys, and I’m certainly happy to be 9-1,” he said via ESPN.

The Philly quarterback Jalen Hurts couldn’t execute his tush-push strategy well in the first quarter, although his 41-yard completion into the arms of his WR DeVonta Smith snatched the match from the Chiefs. Nevertheless, the signal-caller said his squad couldn’t deliver their best effort in the contest.

“I don’t think we played clean tonight. I don’t think we played to our standard — nowhere near our standard. But I think the thing that you can’t test or quantify is the resilience that a team has, the ability to persevere and see through things and overcome things, and this team has that.”

Meanwhile, the Chiefs would not surely forget the costliest mistake of receiver Marquez Valdez-Scantling who missed a long-range pass from Patrick Mahomes. He dropped it at Philly’s goal line with under two minutes remaining in the match, and even tight end Travis Kelce dropped a couple passes. They surely need to work on the receiving side to ensure another potential Super Bowl this season.
