In a game between two offenses that couldn’t find any momentum, a cornerback finally delivered the first big play of the game. Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay jumped a throw from Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen and turned it into a pick-six.

Late in the third quarter with Arizona in search of its first points, Rosen telegraphed his pass and Slay jumped it then ran untouched down the sideline and into the end zone for the first touchdown of the game.

The Cardinals seemed to finally be finding some momentum as they made it into opposing territory, but “Big Play” Slay took it all away and gave Detroit a two-score advantage.

Now trailing by two scores, Rosen will need to show some rare magic and give this offense some consistent play if the Cardinals want any chance to come back in this game.
