Much like the rest of the country, Darius Slay took to social media in disbelief that Marcus Williams completely whiffed on a game saving tackle that would’ve put the Saints in the NFC Title game.
The Detroit Lions CB took to Twitter and made a pretty bold statement about Williams’ intentions.

Slay’s Lions teammate Quinshad Davis agreed with the premise that Williams was paid to miss the tackle and ultimately lose the game. Clearly, both of them stated this tongue-in-cheek, but because of their celebrity, there’s some people out there that will run with this notion.
