Darius Slay will play his 100th career NFL game this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. So Chris Burke of The Athletic pulled Slay to see if he could recall all 19 of his career interceptions and the 15 different quarterbacks he’s managed to pick off.

As you’d expect with Slay, it’s a highly-entertaining interview of the All-Pro cornerback’s recollection and analysis of his best plays throughout his seven-year career. The article is behind a paywall—and I’m going to respect that—but here are a couple of things you can look forward to enjoying.

  • Philip Rivers trash talking Slay before this week’s game—which ended in a Slay game-winning interception.
  • Slay talking about intercepting Matthew Stafford in practice, and the danger of breaking a finger.
  • Slay talking about the GOAT quarterbacks, and how he has an interception against almost all of them.
  • Trying to get quarterbacks to sign the ball he intercepted

I would definitely recommend checking it out if you have an Athletic subscription.

  • Dan Orlovsky breaks down the challenge posed by the Vikings offense in this week’s X’s and O’s:

  • Who’s ready for a penalty-filled game?!?
