Boston picked Drew Brees off on a fourth-quarter pass down the middle, setting up a game-tying touchdown for the Panthers. The safety has now gotten his hands on five passes over the last four games, including a pair of interceptions.
Boston made eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 29-3 loss to the Falcons.

Boston hauled in his first interception of the 2019 season in Week 9, taking advantage of the turnover-prone Ryan Tannehill at the helm for Tennessee. Boston faces a much tougher task on the road against Green Bay in Week 10.
Boston recorded nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Rams.
Boston tied linebacker Shaq Thompson for Carolina's team lead in stops. He also played all 77 defensive snaps in his first game since rejoining the team this offseason.

Boston visited with a handful of teams this offseason but he'll return to Carolina -- where he spent the first three years of his career -- during the early part of training camp. The 27-year-old started 13 games, and had 79 tackles (66 solo) and three interceptions with the Cardinals last season. Boston figures to compete with Rashaan Gaulden for the starting job at free safety opposite Eric Reid.
Boston visited the Giants on Monday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
Boston has drawn interest from a handful of teams this offseason but remains without a contract as training camps get underway. Last season with the Cardinals, the veteran safety recorded 79 tackles, three interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games. The Giants also visited with Jonathan Cyprien on Monday.
Boston is garnering interest from the Browns as an unrestricted free agent, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Boston could fill a notable hole at safety in Cleveland after the team sent Jabrill Peppers to the Giants as part of the blockbuster trade for Odell Beckham. One of the top remaining safeties on the free-agent market, Boston notched 79 tackles, three interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games with the Cardinals last season.
Boston produced 79 tackles (66 solo), three interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 14 games during the 2018 campaign.
Aside from a two-game inactive streak Weeks 7 and 8 due to elbow and shoulder injuries, Boston played at least 89 percent of the snaps on defense in every game but the season finale. The usage translated to the most interceptions and fourth-most tackles among Cardinals defenders but also could result in Boston moving on as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, especially with fellow safeties Budda Baker and Antoine Bethea under contract for the 2019 season.
Boston (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' officials site reports.
Boston missed the last two games, but he'll return to his rotational role. Although he's listed as a backup to Antoine Bethea, Boston has logged more than 63 defensive snaps in each outing. The fifth-year pro has 40 tackles, seven pass breakups and three interceptions through six games.
Boston (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the 49ers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Boston will miss his second consecutive game of the season. The safety didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. In his absence, fellow safety Rudy Ford will likely see an increase in defensive snaps again.
Boston (elbow) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Boston will sit out Thursday Night Football while nursing an elbow injury of undisclosed severity. It remains to be seen whether Boston's injury will require an extended absence, but expect Rudy Ford to see increased defensive snaps as long as Boston remains sidelined.
Boston recorded six tackles and an interception during Sunday's 28-18 win over the 49ers. He also had three passes defensed overall.
Boston earned his second interception of the year when he picked off 49ers' quarterback C.J. Beathard in the first quarter. The 26-year-old safety was signed by Arizona to a one-year deal this offseason following a 2017 season in which he had five interceptions.
Boston agreed Wednesday with the Cardinals on a one-year deal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
For someone who finished the 2018 season as Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest-graded safety in coverage, Boston lasted surprisingly long on the free-agent market. His addition seems like a good get for the Cardinals, whose head coach, Steve Wilks, coached Boston from 2014 to 2016 when both were with the Panthers. During his lone season with the Chargers in 2017, Boston showed that he could be a difference maker when handed extended snaps, as he posted career highs in tackles (79), pass breakups (eight) and interceptions (five). He may not have a direct path to a starting role in Arizona with Budda Baker and Antoine Bethea (pectoral) in the fold at safety, but Boston's coverage skills will likely prompt Wilks to get creative with ways to get the soon-to-be 34-year-old on the field.
Boston recently turned down a "low-level" contract offer from the Cardinals, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.
Boston called the offer "very disrespectful," though it isn't surprising that the Cardinals low-balled him given the weak demand for safeties this offseason -- Eric Reid and Kenny Vaccaro also remain unsigned. With that said, Pro Football Focus graded Boston as tied for eighth among safeties from a pass coverage standpoint in 2017, suggesting he could be a beneficial addition to at least a few teams around the league. Even if nothing materializes in the next few weeks, Boston should find a spot once injuries start piling up during training camp.
Boston is listed as a key free agent to bring back according to ESPN's Eric D. Williams.
Boston signed a one-year deal with the Chargers in the offseason and promptly led the unit in interceptions (five), including one in the team's final game against the Raiders. The 25-year-old was also tied for the second-most tackles on the team, registering a career-high 79 tackles in Gus Bradley's multi-faceted 3-4 defense. Given the variety of talented safeties already locked in on the Chargers defense, it's unlikely the team would pay an exorbitant amount to keep Boston around, but given the fourth-year safety put together his best statistical season with his the club, it might be in Boston's best interest to return to Los Angeles for a second season.
Boston finished Sunday's dominant 54-24 win over the Bills with four tackles and an interception.
Boston's interception was part of a five-pick day by the defense as a whole, and it also marked the second straight week in which the safety was able to record an interception. While the four tackles weren't exactly eye-popping for IDP owners, Boston is only one tackle shy of setting a career high and remains an intriguing option in deeper leagues.
Boston intercepted two passes and finished Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Jaguars with six tackles (four solo).
Boston likely should have had three interceptions, with quarterback Blake Bortles sailing a pass early in the fourth quarter that the veteran safety simply dropped. Still, the two interceptions certainly aren't anything to complain about for fantasy owners savvy enough to start Boston.
Boston wrangled seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.
The Chargers defense was surprisingly stout against the run, holding the Raiders to just five yards per carry, a number that was massively boosted by a Cordarrelle Patterson's 47-yard reverse. Boston was a major part of the improvement while nearly leading the team in tackles, as he only trailed linebackers Hayes Pullard (10) and Korey Toomer (eight) in stops on the afternoon.
Boston registered five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Giants.
Boston's interception sealed the win for the Chargers, as the veteran safety stepped in front of an errant fourth-down throw to close out the game. That interception was one of just two picks on the year for the Chargers through five games, a low number due in part to the fact teams have often been ahead early and simply focused on grinding the clock instead of mounting any sort of attack through the air. Boston's 26 tackles on the season are good for the fifth-highest mark on the team.
Boston recorded nine tackles (six solo) in the 19-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.
Boston's nine tackles were a career high, as the Dolphins decimated the Chargers' front seven with a relentless attack from Jay Ajayi. Considering the four-year veteran managed just three tackles in the game prior, it's unlikely Boston will be a consistent source of production moving forward.
