Eagles DB Williams silences critics with big plays
September 12, 2013, 3:52 pm

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Cary Williams walked his talk.

The fiery cornerback had an impressive debut with the Philadelphia Eagles after being in the spotlight for the wrong reasons throughout the summer.

Williams signed a three-year, $17 million contract, including $10.5 million guaranteed, with the Eagles in the offseason after starting every game the last two seasons for the defending Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens.

He didn't make a positive first impression in Philadelphia, but made up for it in his first game.

Williams had a sack, made a diving interception to give Robert Griffin III his first career two-pick game and later batted down a pass on a key third down in the Eagles' 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
