Lions D roars

DETROIT — When the Lions needed a big play on defense, Darius Slay delivered. Twice. The cornerback forced a Ryan Mathews fumble with just under three minutes to play to set up Matt Prater's winning field goal, then intercepted a Carson Wentz pass with 1:17 left as Detroit handed Philadelphia its first loss. Wentz, the rookie who did not turn the ball over in his first three games, tried a long pass to former Berkeley Prep standout Nelson Agholor but Slay made an over-the-shoulder interception.
