Slay was a First-Team All-Pro selection with Detroit in 2017 and Kelce is a three-time All-Pro selection from 2017-2019.
Kelce is having a tremendous season, despite missing some of the Giants game with a knee injury and leaving the Jets game after being rolled up on late in the game. He is the leader of what is arguably the best offensive line in football.
Jason Kelce keeps playing at an extremely high level, flashing absurd athleticism for the position that allows him to make some blocks in the run game other centers couldn’t dream of. He has allowed 15 pressures in 13 games.
As for Slay, who had a down year in 2020, but has bounced back in a big way this year, season, as the league's fourth best cover corner this season according to Pro Football Focus.
Big Play Slay lived up to his nickname over the past month of play, getting in the end zone on both an interception and a fumble return for the Eagles. Slay has allowed just a 71.2 passer rating and is a threat to score any time he gets his hands on the ball.
Slay was named as the flex player on defense, and is having a big season as a big-play guy this year. He has three interceptions this season after having just one all of last season.
