James Harden was among the Philadelphia celebrities in the crowd support the Eagles in their 24-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.
Eagles cornerback Darius Slay eliminated Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins twice in the game and gave one of the intercepted balls to the Philadelphia 76ers star who was sitting at field level.
Harden was waiting in the Slay Tunnel after the game to get his soccer ball signed. The NBA star told Slay he should have had three or four interceptions in the game.
“I got my ball signed,” Harden said NBC Sports Philadelphia. “I’m fine.”
Slay told reporters he didn’t initially know Harden was at the game until he appeared on the Jumbotron at Lincoln Financial Field.
“He’s like one of my favorite players, so I was like ‘shoot, why not? ‘” Slay explained, adding that if he had an interception, he would give the ball to Harden.
Slay got two picks and was able to stop Vikings star Justin Jefferson in the process. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, “Slay had more interceptions (2) than receptions allowed (1) as the closest defenseman on 5 targets for Justin Jefferson.”
“He’s one of the best in the world,” Slay said of Jefferson. “And, shoot, I’m also one of the best in the world. I was looking forward to the game.”
Jalen Hurts scored three touchdowns in the win.
