On Wednesday, the National Football League has named Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay as the NFC's Defensive Player of the Week.

This after Slay forced a key fumble and intercepted a pass in the fourth quarter of Detroit's win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday at Ford Field.

Slay signed a four-year extension with the Lions this past offseason.
