Philadelphia Eagles’ Darius Slay isn’t holding back his emotions.

After the Eagles’ 38-7 blowout win over the New York Giants in the divisional round of the playoffs, the veteran cornerback had an NSFW message during his post-game interview.

“We cheered the a**,” Slay said. “This atmosphere was great. That was crazy. It was damn loud. I can only imagine if we had a damn dome.”

The veteran cornerback had a solid performance in Philadelphia’s opening win in the playoffs, leading the team with five tackles while also putting down a pass deflector.

The game was highly hyped due to the fact that the Eagles and Giants are divisional rivals. However, it turned out to be a major blowout. From the start of the game to the end, Philadelphia proved too much for NFC East rivals.

At the end of the first half, the Eagles took a 28-0 lead. It was her third straight dominant performance over New York this season. Philadelphia has outplayed the Giants 68-7 in the first half of their three matchups in the 2022 season.

Philadelphia scored on four of his first five offensive possessions in his most recent win against the Giants.

While the offense was impressive in its first postseason game, the defense also set the tone. The unit constantly harassed Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, limiting him to just 135 yards passing and 24 yards rushing with zero touchdowns. In comparison, Jones had 301 passing yards with two touchdowns and 78 rushing yards in the Giants’ 31-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings last week.

“We knew Daniel could play with his legs and our defensive line did a good job of keeping him in the pocket when needed,” said James Bradberry after the game. “There were a few times when we got cover bags. We were tight in our cover, tight on our man, and it allowed them to charge the quarterback and get a few plays on the ball.

Not only was Jones limited when it came to moving the football, he was fired five times by the Eagles’ wild pass-rushing unit and forced to intercept Bradberry early. Four different members of Philadelphia’s Front Seven — Josh Sweat, Haason Reddick, Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham — posted sacks on the night.

With the win, the Eagles advance to their first NFC championship game since winning the Super Bowl at the end of the 2017 season.

“Some guys never get to that position, so I know for myself – I just take it all in because you just have to have an out of this world focus,” Graham said after the win. “So many people, especially being number 1, they all want to hit you. Everyone is talking about you. You gotta block out the noise. You have to focus on what’s at hand, and that means winning the next one. That’s our turn now. We’re enjoying this win and we’re already on to the next because we’re getting closer to our dreams now.”

The Eagles await the winner of the final playoff game of the weekend when the San Francisco 49ers host the Dallas Cowboys. Philadelphia split its two encounters with Dallas this season.
