DeAngelo Hall honored for four-pick game
By Dan Graziano
The league made it official this morning that Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall is NFC Defensive Player of the Week based on his four-interception performance in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Chicago Bears. It's the first time Hall has received the award and it's the first time a Skins cornerback has been so honored since Champ Bailey won the award in '03.
Only 19 players in league history have had four-interception games, and three of them played for the Redskins. Sammy Baugh ('43) and Dan Sandifer ('48) are the other Skins in the Quad Club. It's the second time this season a Skins defensive back has been honored by the league. Safety LaRon Landry received the same award in Week 5.
